The Course
This part time course is integrated with the successful full time Foundation Studies Course in Art, Design and Media.
The course provides an initial stage of broad diagnostic study to help students decide or confirm an area of specialisation. This is then followed by specialist studies and the building of a portfolio of work for application to full time or part time Degree courses in Art and Design. It is also recognised that some students may wish to pursue this course for its own sake rather than progressing to Higher Education.

Entry Requirements
Applications are invited particularly from mature students and those whose life circumstances make attendance on a part time course an appropriate option. There are no formal academic requirements and acceptance will be based on an interview and presentation of a portfolio of work.
Portfolios can include any creative work which demonstrates visual interest and liveliness. This could include, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture or Photography but also any Design or Craft work which shows an interest in ideas or in the resolution of visual, functional or communication problems.
Interviewers will be looking for evidence of commitment; individuality of thinking and a clear interest in Art and Design.

Other Costs
Although some art materials are provided, students will need to buy additional drawing and painting materials, sketchbooks, 3D materials etc during the course. The College Art Shop offers discounts to students. There are two study visits each year.

Course Content
The course is divided equally between 'Core' Studies and 'Design' Studies. The Core Studies programme includes visual study through drawing, life drawing, painting, printmaking and photography. Also included are Art/Design History, Cultural and Supporting Studies with lectures, seminars, research assignments and study visits.
Design Studies encompass diagnostic and specialist modules in Fine Art, Fashion and Textiles, Three Dimensional Design, Graphic Design and Illustration and Media Arts. Part-time students join full-time students for some of the course.

Assessment/Exams
Continuous assessment throughout the two years based on project work with three main assessment points. There is an exhibition of the final exam project.

Progression/Career Path
HND/Degree or other Higher Education courses in Art, Design and related subjects.

What Past Students Say
Learning so many new techniques with empathetic tutors and amidst a stimulating peer group.
I have found the whole course extremely enjoyable and challenging. It has stimulated and encouraged me to move out of my comfort zone and explore new areas and processes.
