Art and Design (BTEC Extended Diploma) at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

This two‐year course is equivalent to three A Levels and offers an exciting balance between introductory work across a range of art and design disciplines, along with an opportunity to specialise in one of four routes in the second year. It is designed to enable you to go on to higher education or a specialist career in art and design, and includes visits to museums and galleries. You will have the opportunity to study an additional subject alongside this course. When you complete this course you may go on to a Higher National Diploma (HND) or a BA (Hons) degree, or into relevant employment. The units are assessed and continually moderated during the course and you will have a personal subject tutor who will guide and support you throughout. In the first year you will study common core units which will strengthen your depth and knowledge of a variety of areas within the field of art and design. In the second year you will choose one of four specialist routes: 3D design, fashion and clothing, fine art or graphics. You will gain a BTEC Subsidiary Diploma (6 units) from September to April in Year 1 of the course. You will then take the remaining 12 units from April of Year 1 until June of Year 2 to gain the full BTEC Extended Diploma. You will exhibit your work in annual exhibitions and you will go on trips to museums and galleries. Trips have included a day out in Oxford, visits to London galleries and tours to local museums and galleries.


A minimum of four level two qualifications. (A*-C AT GCSE or BTECs)
