COURSE OVERVIEW
Our Level 2 UAL Diploma Art & Design course here at The Northern School of Art gives students who have not yet achieved or who need to build on their academic qualifications the chance to gain the equivalent of four GCSEs through an exciting and creative range of 2D and 3D art and design subjects, such as painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic design, surface design, fashion and 3D design.
COURSE DETAILS
Students will be shown how they can express individual ideas and thoughts through a wide range of art and design skills and techniques. They will create a portfolio of work that will reflect their unique potential within art and design and enable them to study further or gain employment. Students will also explore the work of other artists and designers and learn how they have made a career in art and design. This work is supported by educational visits to galleries and other cultural places of interest. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in industrial-led projects and competitions. All of this is managed by highly creative and experienced tutors, who will support and help students to develop their skills as well as helping them to gain confidence on both a personal and creative level. Tutors will also ensure that students receive the right support and guidance to progress onto further courses or employment. Our studios are creative and stimulating places to work and our excellent resources and space ensure that each student can develop their talents in a safe, comfortable and spacious environment. Successful completion of Level 2 may allow progression onto a specialist UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma within the college depending on completion of Level 2 course AND necessary Maths and English qualifications or entry into employment. Maths and English are provided as additional studies to the main course and are compulsory for all students.

What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? Everybody’s really nice and we’ve all come from different backgrounds. The atmosphere is great too. What are your next steps? I want to go onto the Level 3 Art and Design course here after this, which will help me further my skills in art and to see what’s best for me to progress onto for my future career. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how much I’d actually learn! I’ve gained so many new skills I didn’t even know existed. For example, at the moment we’re making 3D mud rock casts which I would have never had the opportunity to do before I came here.
