In such a competitive area, it’s important that students are equipped with the very best skills and experience. For many art and design degrees, this means first having successfully completed an arts foundation course. Unlike the traditional A Level route, an arts foundation course is taken over the course of one year and provides an intensive and structured programme that equips students with the type of practical and theoretical skills that universities and prestigious arts colleges are looking for. From foundation courses in arts in London – entry 2013, to tailored programmes in Cambridge or Brighton, there are a wide range of different options available to you. 


Foundation in Arts - Reputation for excellence


Many colleges and international schools offer some form of arts and design programme, but finding what’s best for you might not be so easy. Perhaps one of the most important considerations you should bear in mind is the college’s relationship with the type of universities that you want to apply to. Reputation is very important in this competitive sphere, so knowing that your college is well-respected by the institutions that you will ultimately be applying to not only gives you peace of mind, but is indicative of a history for delivering excellence. This means that once you’ve been accepted onto the programme, you have already embarked upon your chosen career and can start focusing on the future.
