About International Foundation in Art, Design and Media at University for the Creative Arts

Our International Foundation is fully integrated with English language teaching, helping you to reach your IELTS target for undergraduate level study. With frequent visits to cities such as London and Oxford, as well as trips to the south coast of England and to Amsterdam, you will discover what makes the UK such an important place to study art and design, and why our country has a world-renowned reputation in the creative industries.

Dedicated to preparing international students for an undergraduate degree in the UK, this course celebrates the culture of each student whilst providing vital insight into Higher Education in the UK. You will emerge from the course with the confidence and practical skills to study a creative subject at a more advanced level.

The practical element of the International Foundation involves experimentation in a range of creative practices, such as fashion, graphics, moving image and crafts.

You will occupy your own studio space where you will be able to refine your abilities in a range of specialist techniques, at the same time as developing your own unique style and approach.

By the end of the course you will have a strong creative portfolio, having explored a number of specialisms before choosing a specific subject to pursue at undergraduate level.

You can also choose to study the 5 or 10 week pre-sessional English course before this course which will improve your IELTS score and are specifically designed to prepare you to study art and design at UCA.
