Overview top

This programme is designed to bridge the gap between completing your level 3 studies and moving onto university study. The year-long level 4 programme will give you the opportunity to specialise in one area of art. This specialism will then influence your choice of degree level study. Based in our spacious art studio you’ll have your own personal workspace and access to a wide range of art materials and state of the art digital resources.

You can choose to specialise in one of the following:

  • 3D Design

  • Fashion & Textiles

  • Graphic Design

  • Photography

  • Art Practice

  • Digital Design

Entry Requirements top
