Our Graduate Diploma in Art & Design is a pre-masters course which is academically focused and specifically designed to prepare you for postgraduate level study at UCA. This course will start in September and you will be taught for 30 weeks.
The course has been created to support international students who have not previously studied in the UK education system, helping them to successfully progress to postgraduate study.
Validated by UCA, this course will help you develop the academic skills and practical subject expertise needed to succeed at Masters level.
Art and design at postgraduate level in the UK is subject focused and requires prior knowledge and practice to allow you to explore, develop and challenge established practices within your specialist field of study.
This intensive course enables you to develop, strengthen or even change the subject focus of your first degree (or previous experience) through the development of your portfolio of work. You will also build up knowledge of essential academic research skills and methodologies.
English language support is also integrated into the course, which will improve your English language level in preparation for postgraduate study.
Following successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Art & Design, you will be guaranteed a place on an MA course at UCA.
