Course summary

This one year course (for students who have A-levels or an equivalent qualification) will help you develop your imagination and powers of invention by setting you projects in a variety of different media. It’s the perfect way to find your creative voice if you’re not sure what degree course you’d like to study or boost your existing skills and portfolio if they’re not quite up to degree standard. What’s more, if you successfully complete the Foundation Diploma with us, you’re guaranteed a place on a degree course at AUB.

Students engage in four broad projects; drawing, art, design and media. Using these projects, students are able to diagnose their strengths in order to progress onto the Pathway option most suitable to them.

There are seven specialist Pathways for the final two stages of the course:

  • Fine Art,
  • 3D Design,
  • Illustration,
  • Graphics,
  • Photography,
  • Fashion,
  • Costume and Textiles and
  • Film and Animation.

Our Diploma in Art and Design – Foundation Studies Programme is delighted to have achieved the ‘Outstanding’ rating in its 2018 Ofsted inspection – in all four areas.
