Course description

UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Design: Level 3

The Art Foundation Diploma at Morley College London is an intensive programme of study in fine art, accredited by UAL London. Expand your experience, knowledge and skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, digital media, mixed media (textiles), and contextual studies, and build a portfolio to gain a place at University. Projects are underpinned by one-to-one tutorials, group criticism, self-directed study, gallery visits, and a contextual studies programme. You will document your work throughout the year using a sketchbook, and at the end of the year you will showcase a self-initiated project in a group exhibition in Morley Gallery.

What you will learn

The course runs on Mondays between 10:00 - 17:00 and on Fridays 10:00 -16:00. You are expected to work outside college one day a week for personal research, essay writing and developing your sketchbook.

Over the 3 terms, you will follow practical projects in

  • Drawing
  • Painting 
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture
  • Photography and digital media
  • Mixed media (textiles)

Projects are underpinned by 1:1 tutorials, group crits, self-directed study, gallery visits, and a contextual studies programme. One of the strengths of Morley is that everyone has the opportunity to work in all of the above subject areas throughout the course and can join other art classes at Morley at a discount.

In November, you will start preparing a personal statement and digital portfolio for application to University. There are visits from lecturers from degree courses to give advice on portfolio building and some students (who are eligible) have the opportunity to attend extra portfolio preparation classes at UAL.

Over the 3 terms, you will submit work for assessment, and need to pass 7 units to gain the qualification. The final unit is to prepare work for exhibition in the Morley Gallery in July.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress ou your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
