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.

“I chose to study the Foundation in Art and Design course and specialised in Photography. College gives you a lot more freedom, the lessons are structured more professionally which gives you an idea of what it will be like at university. I would really recommend this course if you want to grow as a designer."Alfie Reddy
