Want to do a creative degree but unsure which one? Our Foundation Diploma in Art, Design & Media Practice at UCA Canterbury is the ideal way to discover your perfect specialism.
This year-long course for 18 year-olds is ideal if you've completed A-Levels, a BTEC or an equivalent course and aren’t sure which creative degree course to take, or just feel you need more time and space to build a fuller portfolio.
You will build your skills across a range of art and design areas, allowing you to discover your passions and develop a solid foundation of skills that will set you up for success at degree level.
In your first term, you’ll explore five different areas within art and design – visual communications, film and photography, 3D design, fashion and textiles and drawing and painting – using our industry-standard facilities and workshops.
After that, you’ll choose one of these pathways to take forward as you begin preparing for your undergraduate studies, bringing together all your newly-developed skills, knowledge and understanding to plan and create a major project and showcase it in an exhibition.
Throughout your course, you’ll work in your own dedicated studio space on campus and take your place in our creative community, with opportunities to work alongside undergraduate and postgraduate students along the way.
Once you finish this course, you will be awarded the Pearson BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art, Design & Media Practice.
