Location: TheGallery, AUB campus

The Foundation Diploma Summer Show celebrates the achievements of our students, providing an exciting platform to showcase their final project work to the public.

The Foundation Diploma is an exciting and intense one-year (full-time) course, providing the opportunity for students to work across a range of specialist disciplines within the creative arts, that encourages risk-taking and experimentation with new materials, approaches and principles. The course gives a strong creative grounding and works to develop an individual’s artistic and creative practice within specialised methodologies of art, design and media.

The Foundation Diploma develops students as independent learners, building strong portfolios and artistic direction and preparation for progression. The course acts as a bridge from Further Education into Higher Education, as well as offering a space in which to explore and develop artistic practice at any stage of life.

Foundation student work exhibited in this show demonstrates the diverse range of projects that are undertaken across its seven specialism areas:

  • 3D Art, Craft and Design
  • Fashion, Costume and Textiles
  • Film and Animation
  • Fine Art
  • Graphic Communication
  • Illustration
  • Photography

TheGallery is an internationally renowned and award-winning exhibition space - the perfect backdrop in showcasing the work of this emerging talent.
