Art and Design (Including Foundation Year) BA Hons (Full-time)
Why study this course?
This four-year degree course includes an intensive foundation year (Year 0), which will enable you to progress onto one of our art or design undergraduate degree courses at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design (The Cass). It is both preparatory and diagnostic, allowing you to explore a number of different directions prior to choosing a specialism at the end of the year. It will also provide you with the skills required for your subsequent three years of study.
As a start you’ll undertake a broad range of short studio and workshop projects in visual imagery and practical making. These will help you to develop techniques that are common across all of our foundation year courses and introduce you to a work ethic of experimentation and open-mindedness. Following this you will approach open-ended, interpretive projects that will help you to establish a personal perspective and sense of direction.
All of our foundation year programs allow you to develop techniques in:
- observational, technical and creative drawing
- 2D and 3D composition
- framing, sequence/series and narrative
- studio and workshop skills
During your subject-specific projects you’ll also have the opportunity to explore:
- conceptual modelling
Your lectures and seminars will frame the creative practice within historical, contemporary, conceptual and cultural contexts.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
- At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
- English Language GCSE at grade C (grade 4 from 2017) or above or will need to take the University English test
