Our Extended Diploma in Art & Design at UCA Rochester offers you a unique opportunity to study on a practical art and design course within a university environment at the age of 16. It's ideal if you have a passion for art, but feel restricted by how it’s taught at school.
This course is equivalent to three A-Levels, and is a two-year course which allows you to try out a wide range of art and design subjects or specialise directly before choosing a degree subject.
At our Rochester campus, you’ll have access to the same facilities and workshops as all our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Towards the end of the course, you’ll undertake a final major project and participate in your diploma exhibition – you may also take part in a live project, giving you an insight into the creative industries and the chance to work with studios or galleries in the area or London.
Don’t worry if you still need to get your English or mathematics GCSE – we’re committed to getting you ready for an undergraduate degree and your future career, so we hold classes in both subjects.
On completion of this course, you will be awarded the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design.
