Course description

What will I learn?

Designed for anyone who would like to go on to study specialist art & design disciplines at university level, this Level 3 Diploma in Art & Design provides the essential foundational studies you’ll need to make the transition from a general exploration of the subject to a more in-depth focus of core topics. It will also help you decide which areas of art & design you’d like to further your skills in. You’ll cover a wide range of media and material throughout the duration of the Diploma, including painting and drawing, sculpting, illustration, graphics (both digital and traditional), textiles and photography. As you boost your confidence in the use of concepts and vocabulary through practical assignments, you’ll also be fostering your own individual creative development. You’ll develop a range of skills that will be essential for both further study and employment in the industry, such as teamwork, creative thinking, research skills and problem solving. Your Diploma is awarded by the University of the Arts London Awarding Body, the only specialist creative arts awarding body in the UK.
