COURSE OVERVIEW
Our Access to HE in Art & Design course here at The Northern School of Art is designed to give opportunities for those returning to education or mature (19+) students, to achieve a higher education qualification. Students will cover on the course a wide range of disciplines, whilst gaining a strong understanding of the design process such as drawing, textiles, 2D and 3D communication, digital arts and art history. Students will be given support with research, essay writing, UCAS applications and create a progression portfolio.
COURSE DETAILS
Throughout the course, professional expertise will guide students through the portfolio building processes essential for university interviews. The whole course will culminate in a final exhibition of work in our Summer Show. Although there are no formal entry requirements, students will be required to provide evidence of their commitment, motivation and life skills to cope with the level of the course, by providing such things as drawings, photographs, ideas development. concept art, embroidery, craft items and evidence of written work. Successful completion gives students a qualification and the skills to progress to a wide range of degree level courses at university, including MAs if you already have a degree in a non-Art & Design subject. The Access to HE Diploma (Art and Design) is awarded by One Awards.

STUDENT PROFILE

CHELSEA WARTON What do you enjoy most about your course? I’m looking to do concept art at university once I finished my course here. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I know now that this was the best choice for me to progress with my career. What are your next steps? This seemed like the best way to get back into education, as I’ve been out of the educational loop for 5 years and this college seemed like the best one to come to. I wanted to get myself university ready and no other place seemed good enough to do that. What's surprised you about your time here? Concept art is my area and with the diversity that this course offers, it was also perfect to develop myself in an area whilst also learning some new things that I wouldn’t normally think to try.
