The Short Course Unit at the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture offers a wide variety of exciting art and design courses aimed at all sectors of the general public. Suitable for beginners to professionals, our courses are taught by highly-talented, qualified tutors whose enthusiasm for their subject will, we hope, inspire you to new artistic heights. Our courses range from part time evening classes to intensive summer schools and cover a wide variety of subjects ranging from fashion design to stone carving and bronze sculpture courses.
Portfolio Preparation Courses
As well as Art and Design based short courses, the Short Course Unit offers Portfolio Preparation Courses aimed at students who intend to apply for a Foundation course. The focus will be on the major areas that should be represented in an applicant’s folder. Courses are based in the Foundation Studies in Art & Design Department and are taught by tutors with a wealth of experience teaching at the Foundation level and beyond. Students will receive advice about what constitutes a good portfolio folder and what should be included in it.
