What will I learn?

This programme is tailored to help you develop the skills required at Master’s level and bridge the gap between your ability / experience and the ambition to study at Postgraduate level. Emphasis is placed on encouraging you to become an independent learner and confident within the English-speaking educational culture.

The Graduate Diploma will help you to develop your spoken English in order to achieve the required level for direct entry onto a Master’s. It will also give you the experience you need and understanding of UK learning and teaching styles, to help you develop your portfolio further and build on existing skills as well as developing potential lines of research.

There are three distinct pathways within our Graduate Diploma programme which are tailored to suit your artistic discipline. Students can choose between Art and Design (Fine Art, Product Design, Spatial Design), Fashion (Fashion Design, Fashion Branding and Creative Communication), and Visual Communication (Graphic Design and Visual Communication, Illustration & Animation).
