Art & Design Level 4 Foundation Diploma

The UAL Foundation Diploma Art & Design Level 4  at Reigate School of Art, is a pivotal qualification, which has provided a transition from general education to specialist art and design education. This has enabled students to make an informed decision when applying to Higher Education or seeking employment within a related industry.

The students have discovered what it means to self-challenge, to be self-critical, to be highly ambitious, and to take risks with their work. The greatest value of this course, for them, has been to recognise they can accomplish a monumental level of achievement and self-confidence when they take responsibility for their own learning and follow their own intentions. And alongside that this year, considering the challenges of the COVID-19 Virus and the Lockdown, they have produced some truly remarkable, beautiful and unique design and artwork.

What students have said

I think that working remotely in Quarantine has taken a large communal part of the course away, which could have restricted the way that our projects have developed. However, all of the support and information we have needed has been there through the use of Microsoft teams, and it has also led to more creative thinking in terms of what the projects have entailed, and how it will be represented/received, so all I all, it has gone pretty well, by which I mean we could all be in a much worse position than we currently are.-Aedan Price
"Working at home during lockdown has definitely been a positive experience for me and has made me a much better artist (although the circumstances are a bit unfortunate)! I haven’t had the distraction of my peers and I haven’t been late for college once in 3 months which is a record! All humour aside, I have definitely improved in my skills by just having hours and hours of practicing different techniques and trying new ideas that maybe I wouldn’t have tried otherwise! I have also been finding inspiration from unusual things that I wouldn’t usually notice and creating the most random models just for fun. I have also received lots of support from my amazing tutors which has kept me motivated and has stopped me from staying in bed all day!-Bea Harper

I have achieved much more then I ever thought I would and you have pushed me further than any tutor I have had before and helped me make some amazing creations!!
