The art and design world is very diverse – it’s exciting, it’s dynamic and it’s everywhere. We try to relate our course to the world of work through our live projects, to the realities of all creative industries, and to preparing students to progress into higher education, if they choose.  We encourage students to gain part-time work experience whilst they’re on the course so they can apply the knowledge learned in the classroom in the real world. 

We’ll take you on a range of visits that are relevant to the programme of study you choose. You’ll get plenty of notice of these activities so that you can budget accordingly, although we try and keep them as cheap as possible.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.
