About Access to Higher Education Diploma in Art & Design at University for the Creative Arts

If you’re returning to education and looking for a part-time art and design course, then the Access to Higher Education Diploma – Art & Design at UCA Epsom is the perfect springboard to a degree course, a career change or progression in your existing career.

Specifically tailored to those entering education after a break, our Access Diploma in Art & Design gives you the chance to explore a range of art and design subjects, whilst balancing other work or family commitments.

Open to anyone over 19 years of age, you’ll study with us for two days a week at our Epsom campus, normally experimenting in five disciplines – Fine Art, Fashion and Textiles, 3D Design, Lens-based Media and Visual Communications.

On this course you’ll develop or rediscover the skills and confidence needed for the art and design world. You’ll be supported by individual tutorials, educational visits, a range of lectures, and opportunities to partake in live briefs and competitions.

All staff members teaching this course are either active practitioners or involved in research in their specialist fields, offering you a great opportunity to build relationships and learn directly from experts.

Our Access Diploma is fully integrated with the other pre-degree and foundation diploma courses at the Epsom campus – so you’ll be working within a wider creative community where you can share ideas, techniques and project concepts.

Throughout your studies you’ll have your own dedicated studio space, as well as access to the same facilities as an undergraduate or postgraduate student.
