The course will introduce you to new concepts and ways of working within art and will allow you to explore and gain confidence to express your own ideas. The emphasis is on practical work and the development of your own portfolio. You will also learn about the role art has played in history and in society today through visits to galleries, working with practising artists and your own independent research. Throughout the course, you will have opportunities to work alongside professional artists and designers to give you a greater understanding of the creative industries.
How will I be assessed?
Examinations + assignments.
What can I do next?
Students from the UAL course have gone on to pre-degree foundation and degree courses in art and design, fine art, textiles, graphic design, architecture, photography, fashion studies and interior design. The portfolio you produce over the course will enable you to show a wide range of relevant experience and skills for future interviews.
A Level Art and Design is widely recognised for developing an enquiring and critical mind as well as developing creative and technical potential, and is a useful qualification for applying for further study in a wide range of areas. You may wish to use your portfolio to support applications for a pre-degree foundation course or a higher course at degree level.
