This programme is ideal if your qualifications and English language skills fall below the entry requirements for your chosen undergraduate programme in an Art, Design or Media subject. The course lasts for 3 semesters and offers you the opportunity to develop your English language and study skills, combined with the study of subject-specific modules.
There is an initial semester of English (the English Foundation Course) which will prepare students for the two semesters of International Foundation Programme that follow. The first semester of the IFP then focuses on the key skills across all areas of Art, Design and Media whilst the second semester is when you specialise in your target area e.g. fashion, fine art, textiles, animation or design. In addition to the specialism modules, the programme provides a solid foundation in the core knowledge and skills that the University recognises and will help you to succeed in your future studies.
The programme is multidisciplinary and upon successful completion you will be guaranteed a place on one of our undergraduate degrees in an Art, Design or Media subject area.
