Art and Design Diploma Level 2 (UAL)

Edinburgh College


Granton Campus


The UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design is an ideal introductory course for school leavers or adult returners who have a keen interest in Art and Design but need to develop a suitable portfolio to progress onto more advanced courses the following year.

You will broaden your knowledge of art and design by undertaking a range of stimulating projects using a variety of 2D and 3D media within our Art and Design studios.

Students are encouraged to explore and contextualise their own creativity using a range of materials, methods and creative approaches. The importance of drawing, contextual research and the Creative Process underpin the course which culminates in the presentation of a personal project.

On successful completion of the course our UAL level 2 students can progress on to more advanced study in Art and Design for example an NC, UAL level 3 or UAL Foundation Diploma.
