What's Involved

The Level 3 Diploma in Art & Design is a one year full time programme that is equivalent to 1.5 A levels. The course consists of 90 credits that are delivered across the year allowing students to explore a range of art and design disciplines. Other subject areas include fashion, 3D, fine art, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, graphic design and ceramics.

The course aims to give students the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding by experiencing work across a range of contexts in art, craft and design. Drawing is seen as a very important aspect of the course and continues throughout the year along with critical studies.

Students will have the chance of working in a variety of specialist areas to see where their interests and strengths lie.
