Art and Design
Art and Design is an excellent creative pathway to a wide range of practical and academic subjects at degree level. Many of our students progress to a one year Foundation Diploma course and then on to creative degree courses and careers. Others, use the experience of Art & Design to provide a creative balance to their other subjects.
Entry Requirements: At least a Grade 6 in Art GCSE with a grade 5 in English Language GCSE. If you have not completed a GCSE in Art you may be able to provide alternative evidence of your aptitude and enthusiasm for the subject.
Qualities and skills required: You should have experience of using art materials and processes together with some knowledge of contemporary and historical art and design. You should have a commitment to and love of the subject and feel motivated to develop your visual skills and express your ideas in working through assignments. If you have not completed a GCSE course in Art but are committed to a future in art and design, we may consider offering you a place. You would attend an interview with the Head of Department where you would need to show evidence in the form of a portfolio of work that demonstrates your genuine interest in the subject.
