As a Foundation student, you’ll be on campus for at least three days a week, with your own dedicated studio space. If you’re also studying English and/or Maths as part of your programme, you’ll attend for longer.

As the year progresses, you’ll have more freedom to specialise and direct your route through the course. This will help you grow as an artist or designer and determine in which creative direction your academic path and future career may lie.
