    Course Overview

    This course is based at our Ipswich campus.

    The study programme operates over three days a week and there is an expectation that some self-initiated work will develop during private study. The study programme is made up of a series of units that enables you to experiment in different ways. The study programme includes drawing, digital art & design, 3D, and 2D.

    All students who have not achieved a grade 4 (C) or above in GCSE English or maths will need to study these subjects alongside their chosen qualification.

    Ryan - UAL Level 1 Diploma in Art & Design

    I came to Level 1 Art and Design after a negative experience at school. On the course I found that I had the freedom to make work in different ways and learn more about the job I wanted to do. I received specialist support for my dyslexia which really helped to grow my confidence in myself and my creative work.
