What career opportunities can this lead to?

This programme introduces students to a range of mediums, techniques and processes used in the creative industries. The main progression route after completing the Level 2 is the Level 3 programme within the department, which will then give students the opportunity for progression onto Higher Education.

What are the entry requirements?

You will need minimum of 3 GCSEs at grade A*-D or 9-3, preferably including one or more from art, design or media based subjects. An appropriate Introductory Certificate in Vocational Studies may also be considered.

Students should also have good attendance and attainment reports from their previous school or college, demonstrating interest and commitment to study, and successfully complete a college interview. Through the interview you should provide evidence of work you have produced within art, design or media.

What does this programme involve?

The programme will allow students to explore design and development, computer imaging techniques, 2D and 3D visual recording techniques and visual communication methods. All assignments and projects are closely focused on individual and personal development.

The unique programme offers workshops in the first term, allowing students to gain experience in using the equipment and facilities within the department and develop focused technical knowledge.

You will have the opportunity to study photography, graphics, illustration, fine art, fashion and textiles, design, fashion styling, digital media, animation and video production.

Students will learn and develop skills through the use of industry standard software and facilities, preparing them for progression to the Level 3 Art, Design and Media.

All students without a GCSE at grade A*-C or 9-4 in English or Maths will be required as a condition of the programme to undertake either a GCSE or Functional Skills programme.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

A series of specialists workshops in the first term will provide students with an introduction to the range of mediums that are available to use within the department. This process will form assignment one. Following on from this, students will be given assignments which will require them to focus on both the theoretical perspectives and practical elements of art, design and media.

The work created will be in preparation for progression. Students also undertake a final major project in term three of the programme and write, plan and produce their own self-directed project and brief. During assignments, students work is regularly reviewed through 1:1 tutorials and peer reviews and critiques.

What else do I need to know?

Students will have opportunity to attend local and national study visits to exhibitions and galleries such as The Tate Galleries in London, The Pit Rivers Museum and The Ashmolean Gallery in Oxford.

Locally, we have visited Southampton City Art Gallery and the John Hansard Gallery in Southampton. During term time we have specialist workshops and talks given by both industry practitioners and artists.

UAL Awarding Body is part of University of the Arts London and is the only specialist art, design and creative industries awarding organisation in England. They are selective about who they work with and seek to identify institutions who are innovative, creative and committed to arts education.
