Foundation Diploma in Art and Design — Foundation Studies at AUB

If you love being creative, it can be hard to decide which subject you’d like to specialise in. So don’t decide. Our Pre-Degree courses give you a chance to explore different creative areas before choosing the subject you want to take a degree in. Or simply enjoy a year of being creative before moving on to something else.

This one year course (for students who have A-levels or an equivalent qualification) will help you develop your imagination and powers of invention by setting you projects in a variety of different media. It’s the perfect way to find your creative voice if you’re not sure what degree course you’d like to study or boost your existing skills and portfolio if they’re not quite up to degree standard. What’s more, if you study a Foundation Diploma with us, you’re guaranteed an interview for a degree course.

This course will not be running on a part-time basis for 2014/15.

BA Undergraduate courses

Our BA courses offer a tremendous opportunity to study an arts subject you love.

Collectively, the BA courses form a hot house of creativity, where students from different disciplines are able to exchange ideas on creativity and work together on more ambitious projects. We offer 17 BA degree courses, all studied over three years. Most of them include a work placement period that gives students the benefit of real experience in their chosen industry. There are also overseas study opportunities available through the Erasmus Programme.

MA Courses

An MA is a chance to build on your achievements and study at an advanced level.

Our courses are for students who want to deepen their understanding of a subject. As well as graduates from related courses, our MAs also attract students from a wide range of arts and humanities backgrounds, who have the discipline to study but want to broaden their knowledge in a new area. Collaborative working offers our academic high flyers tremendous potential for innovation and creativity. Our subject leaders will also challenge you to redefine your individual approach to your subject as you embrace the opportunity to focus on your chosen field.
