About Diploma in Art & Design - Foundation Studies at University for the Creative Arts

The Diploma in Art & Design – Foundation Studies at UCA Rochester is designed for post A-Level students, and prepares you for the progression from diploma to degree.

While studying the Foundation Diploma you’ll spend the year exploring a range of creative subjects, giving you the time and creative inspiration to decide which area of art and design you’d like to specialise in when you come to choose your undergraduate degree.

The first part of your year will be spent investigating different areas of art and design, identifying your strengths and personal interests to help you grow as an artist or designer. As the year progresses, you’ll have more freedom to specialise and direct your route through the course, resulting in an exhibition of your work at the end of the year and a unique and varied portfolio, ready for your undergraduate degree.

You’ll have access to the facilities at UCA Rochester and will be supported by teams of subject specialist lecturers – most lecturers are active within their own fields as professional designers, artists and researchers.

Working in and amongst our undergraduate and postgraduate students as part of our uniquely creative community, you’ll be able to observe first-hand the range of degree options available to you.

As a foundation student at UCA, you’ll be on campus for at least three days a week with your own dedicated studio space. If you’re expected to be studying English and/or Maths as part of your programme, you’ll attend for longer.

On completion of this course, you will be awarded the UAL Level 3 Diploma in Art & Design - Foundation Studies.
