UAL Level 2 Award and Diploma in Art & Design — Overview

The application process for this course is now closed for 2020 starters, please contact admissions@pca.ac.uk with any queries.

The UAL Awarding Body Level 2 Award and Diploma in Art & Design course is a fantastic developmental programme supporting learners to access our Extended Diploma programmes.

This is an exciting and fun preparatory course that prepares you for study in Art, Design and Media. You will explore a range of subjects and learn through exploring new subjects, solving problems and experimenting.

Who is this course for?

This course is best suited to students who are keen to progress further in art, design and media, but who don’t yet have the qualifications or experience necessary to be successful at Level 3 (including A-Levels or Extended Diplomas in Art & Design).

You might need a little more time to complete your GCSEs in English or Maths, you might be homeschooled, or maybe you’re returning to study after some time overseas or away from education.

Most of our Level 2 students will be aged 16 or over, and won’t yet have achieved the GCSE results needed to progress onto one of our A-Level equivalent UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas in Art & Design.

Whatever route leads you to us, our UAL Awarding Body Level 2 Award and Diploma in Art & Design will prepare you for Level 3 study and beyond, progressing to university or your future career.

What will I achieve?

Stage one will be an introductory project that will allow you to develop new practical skills, creative approaches to producing art, design and media work as well as developing your critical thinking.

Stage two will help you identify your chosen pathway whilst developing skills in drawing, photography, media, fashion, graphics and 3D sculpture.  You will be supported by lecturers who are active in their field, along with the use of some excellent resources, in the discovery of your chosen progression route after this course.

Stage three allows you to bring together all your skills and knowledge in the form of a final project.
