What makes the programme unique

Programme Structure
Drawing and the Expanded Field
This module develops students’ understanding of the formal elements of drawing and visual language. Through working with a range of scales and materials, a variety of techniques, process and methods are explored to develop the students observational and experimental drawing skills. Drawing is an essential component of the programme and the skills gained in this module inform and underpin all the different areas of practice within Art and Design.
Contextual and Critical Understanding
During this module students gain an understanding of the key points in art and design history and how these have been shaped by the social and political landscape of the time. The module is delivered through a series of lectures and practical tasks. Through undertaking these tasks students develop their research and presentation skills.
Developing Practical Skills in Art and Design
This module gives the students and opportunity to work across different technical environments. They develop their technical proficiency across a range of key workshops equipping them with the practical skills that will underpin their future art and design practices.
Development and Extension
During this module students have the opportunity to refine practical techniques that they have explored previously to a much more advanced level. Students are supported in the development of their individual projects through a series of tutorials and group critiques within the studio. Students learn to work independently and resourcefully throughout this period and the resolved final outcomes are exhibited in the end of year public exhibition.
