Diploma in Art and Design (University of the Arts London) - Level 2 at South Thames College

Course description

If you want to get started in art and design, this course helps you look at the creative process and principles of art and design but not in a rigid course structure. Your projects, which last from two to six weeks, help you apply new skills in more and more complex ways to push your learning.

Entry requirements

Three GCSEs A*-D including English or maths; OR a relevant Level 1 qualification with appropriate levels of English and maths. You'll also need to provide a portfolio of art and design work at interview - which could include sketchbooks, drawings, etc. If you don't have a portfolio, we may ask you to complete some practical tasks as part of your interview to make sure the course is a good match for you.


Assessment will take place at the end of each project, every four to six weeks. You'll also be assessed through individual and group presentations.

Future opportunities

Further information

You'll buy an art kit and this provides a variety of resources worth more than the cost - payment is assessed on your circumstances.
