UAL Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design

The UAL Level 3 Diploma in Art & Design is aimed at 16-18 year old students who want to specialise in art and design rather than stay at school and take the multiple AS level pathway. It is the first year of a course for committed and dedicated students mostly seeking to progress to the Foundation course without doing two years of A-Level at school.

The type of student who applies here often feels that school is not the place for them and they wish to experience a fast paced and challenging art and design course on a full time study basis rather than five hours a week in an A level. We will be looking for independent minded students who enjoy creative challenge and are keen and motivated to draw experiment and develop their skills. You must be prepared to make your own decisions about your artwork and then be able to talk about your reasons and wishes in your work.

UAL Foundation Diploma in Art & Design

This one-year course in Art & Design develops and encourages self-awareness, skills, inventiveness, and analysis.

With so many different degree courses in Art and Design subjects and fees increasing it is more important than ever that you feel confident in your choice of direction and are equipped with the necessary skills for study at degree level. We have a long history of guiding pre-degree students to discover and develop their strengths and make an informed choice of specialism and place of study that specifically supports your individual practice. You cannot afford not to do Foundation if you want to make the most of a degree in any aspect of Art & Design, reflected in it being a pre-requisite for the best degree courses.

The long established Foundation philosophy of creative exploration and self-discovery is often credited as a factor in the strength of today's creative industries. It's challenging, hard work and a lot of fun, encouraging you to think 'outside the box'. Actually, we also suggest you make your own box as well! As such it is also suitable for people who simply want to explore their creative potential in a supportive and stimulating environment.
