You will study various areas of Art & Design practice, including Painting, Sculpture and 3D Design, Life Drawing, Printmaking, Computer Manipulation, Design and Textiles, and Illustration.

You will also have the opportunity to specialise is a distinct pathway, linked to your own career aspirations. You have the choice to explore many formats, materials and resources, and will take part in practical workshops linked to these. In learning new processes and acquiring new skills, you are allowed the freedom to decide how you, as an individual, interpret the topics and the projects you work on.
There are loads of experiences you could get involved in:
