The higher education sector advises students who wish to pursue Art and Design as a career, to progress to the Art Foundation Pre-Degree Diploma; we offer this at Strode. It
prepares students for specialist practical arts courses at degree level such as animation, architecture, design, illustration, fashion, fine art and graphics.
You can also use the Art and Design A Level to support your progression to degrees in other areas such in advertising, interior design, marketing, media, theatre and care and education. The subject can also help you access Apprenticeships in Arts and Events
Management and Reprographics.
A large proportion of our students study the Art Foundation Diploma at Strode College before progressing to university and specialist art schools. Previous students have progressed to
Fine Art degrees at University of the Arts, Kingston University, Falmouth University and the University of Winchester.
