BA (Hons) Study AbroadArt and Design

Course Overview

Semester Study Abroad courses are for students and professionals who wish to spend time abroad, developing their creative skills and gaining credits towards their university degree, but do not necessarily want to spend 2-3 years in another country.

Students are fully integrated with our BA (Hons) students in an exciting, creative University environment.

The Semester Study Abroad Art and Design course is an exciting, varied and practical course with expert career guidance which can lead directly into employment in the creative industries or, more often, be used as a progression route into Higher Education and specialist courses in art, design, media or performance. Many students choose this course to commence study in a specialist environment.

The course is designed to give you a very strong practical knowledge in aspects of Art, Design and Media covering a wide spectrum of disciplines such as Fine Art, Painting and Drawing, Sculpture, Fashion, Textiles, Graphic Design, 3D Design, Video and Photography. If you are undecided about which area you would like to specialise in, this course allows you to firstly experiment and then focus on specific areas within art, design and media. It will allow you to develop your interests and strengths – expert tutors will guide you through all stages of your development.

Portfolios are required from all prospective candidates who wish to do a Semester Study Abroad course at the Arts University. The portfolio’s purpose is to show us how you communicate and translate ideas visually. Your portfolio will be reviewed by the course leader and a panel who will determine the most appropriate year of study in the course for each candidate.

Other type of programmes, such as Bespoke courses are also available. For more information or to apply for a course contact us on +44 1202 853608 or email
