This exciting three-day-a-week course is ideal for those who are returning to education. There are two stand-alone, 14 hours per week, year-long courses: the first a Level 2 Diploma in Visual Arts and the second a Level 3 Access to HE Diploma (Art & Design).
Students usually progress from level two to level three; however, those with art and design experience and a clear idea of their preferred specialism can apply directly for Access to HE Diploma (Art & Design). Many Access to Higher Education students win places on the UK’s most competitive degree courses including those at Leeds Arts University. This course is for you whether you’re just starting out or looking for a new direction in life, and if you’re serious about a professional career in art and design.
These courses offer a supportive atmosphere in which to develop your skills and interests, and to build your confidence. Successfully completing the Access to HE Diploma (Art & Design) will enable you to apply for art and design degree courses here or at any other higher education institution.
We’ll help you with your UCAS application, although you won’t be pushed down the university route if that’s not what you want. We offer lots of individual guidance as to which course and institution are right for you, plus support in putting together a strong portfolio of work as part of your application.
