International | Fast-Track Foundation Diploma in Art and Design
Why this course?
This dynamic fast track course begins with a support module completed remotely between September to December. This guided learning programme has been specially designed for our international students to help them prepare for their course and studying in the UK. During these initial weeks, our expert arts team will support students to think and work like a practising artist or designer. The support module concludes with the students choosing their final pathway specialism. Our highly skilled team will support this decision through the distance learning package.
During December, staff will also support students to apply for their chosen UAL degree.
At the end of this guided learning programme, students will be fully prepared and ready to begin their Foundation specialism in the UK in January.
On arrival to the UK, students will benefit from the embedded English for Academic Purposes programme. This includes four hours of dedicated tuition each week to complement and fully support the art curriculum. Students will receive lessons on the
key study and language skills required to successfully complete this course. This stage of the course will also see students taking part in exciting and challenging creative projects to extend their creative, expressive and technical skills. They will work in a range of different scales and mediums, sometimes collaboratively or as part of a small creative team. This reflects real-life creative practices in the Creative Arts industry.
Students will be taught through guided distance learning for one term, with a further two terms learning in the UK.
