The Art & Design General Foundation course will give you a broad experience and awareness of a range of disciplines. It will also improve your skill level. This will help you to decide on your choice of Honours degree specialism for the following three years. You will submit a portfolio of work after completing the one year course. We will assess this for progression onto the specialism of your choice.
From Level 2 onwards the students choose to follow one of the following specialisms: Animation BDes (Hons); Art & Philosophy BA (Hons); Fine Art BA (Hons); Graphic Design BDes (Hons); Illustration BDes (Hons); Jewellery and Metal Design BDes (Hons); Textile Design BDes (Hons).
See individual entries for more details on the Fine Art and Design course contents for Levels 2, 3 and 4.
