Art and Design

What will I study?

Art, in all of its forms, inspires creativity, stirs emotion, sparks debate and reflects society.

On the Art and Design A Level or mixed media, you can express your own creative flair within your specialisation, be it drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, textiles, illustration or printmaking. The programme will cover a wide variety of media, allowing you the opportunity to flex your creative muscles while learning new techniques and approaches.


How the course is assessed:

Coursework & 1000 personal study 60%
12 hours external exam project 40%


What does it combine with?

The Art and Design A Level would complement courses in English Literature, Film Studies, Media Studies and technology.


Where can it lead to?

Careers as an animator, illustrator, product designer or fashion designer are all possible pathways for Art and Design students.
Work in the media, film and television, marketing and the textile industry are further options. You can pursue art and design at university with a degree in fine art, visual culture, art history or illustration.
