UAL Design Applied General Diploma

This pathway within the Art and Design course is aimed at people, who enjoy solving creative problems, while looking at traditional ideas from new and contemporary perspectives.

You will learn how to successfully use a range of Hi-Tech software and hardware, whilst developing your understanding of the design process, necessary research and conceptual skills, which are fundamental to entering these commercial areas.

The course also develops your independence, as you complete projects from conception through to realisation, preparing you for the Applied General Extended Diploma in Design year 2.

The College is an accredited centre of excellence working in partnership with the University of the Arts London (UAL); Europe’s largest specialist art and design awarding body, giving you the best possible platform from which to progress and succeed. The emphasis of an art and design qualification at the College is on developing creative thinking and innovative approaches to problem solving.

What will I learn?

After completing my Level 3 BTEC in Software Development I went on to do a BSc (Hons) Cyber Security Management degree at Bournemouth University. During my first year I qualified for Cyber Security Challenge UK's end of year masterclass competition, where the top 42 contenders (of all ages) from around the country go head to head in a bid to be crowned cyber champion of the year. I also was selected to represent the UK in the European Cyber Security Challenge held in Malaga. I was the only girl to qualify for Team UK. Alongside these successes, I also spent the majority of the year competing in national ethical hacking competitions around the country with my university and attending cyber security camps hosted by Cyber Security Challenge UK.Sophia McCall
