What previous qualifications or experience do I need?

You must achieve at least five GCSEs grade A*/9 - C/4 in four different subjects, including English Language and/or maths at least grade C/4, or an equivalent Level 2 vocational qualification. You will also need at least GCSE Art or an art related subject grade C/4.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is regular and ongoing. It is entirely based on coursework (there is no exam with UAL), and so you need to be well organised and good at meeting deadlines. You should also enjoy working independently.

What qualification will I achieve?

Year 1 leads to the UAL L3 Diploma in Art and Design (equivalent to 3 AS levels or 1.5 A Levels) Year 2 leads to the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design (equivalent to 3 full A Levels) To achieve this qualification you will be graded between 'Distinction*' and 'Pass'.

What can I do after completing this course?

Most students progress to undergraduate study, and our students go to some of the best university courses in the country. Some progress to apprenticeships, and some, to employment and internships.

Are there any extra costs?

Materials fees may be required but we are currently working on removing these costs moving forwards. This will be discussed at interview and our open events.

As well as a materials fee which covers studio based materials etc., you will need to purchase materials throughout your course. It is very difficult to predict how much this amounts to, because different specialisms attract very different costs but we can discuss this with you at interview or any of our open events.
