The Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at City & Guilds of London Art School introduces you to a wide range of creative subjects, with the time, space and expert teaching you need to experiment and evolve your ideas, and your conceptual and practical skills.

Unlike most other Foundation courses, we are able to tailor the course to your specific interests by giving you much greater tutorial time than you will find elsewhere, and by providing a motivating and supportive studio environment where you will be allocated your own designated studio space throughout the week.

Following carefully structured projects and taught workshops, you will be supported to progressively take greater control of your own learning and identify your own specialist direction.  The Foundation Show at the end of the year demonstrates an extraordinary range of directions and outputs by our hugely creative students.

As a Level 4 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, validated by the University of the Arts London (UAL) Awarding Body, our course has more advanced expected learning outcomes than many Foundation programmes. Level 4 is the level at which first-year undergraduate courses are assessed and the expectations on our course align with this.

By enrolling on our Foundation Diploma, you will be joining a progressive and creative learning community within a wider art school. Our teaching staff are professional artists and designers who possess a broad knowledge of material processes and the production of images, objects, events, fashion, video and performance through hands-on experience.  Students are guided through an immersive creative journey and are fully supported in their decisions and applications for progression to subsequent career and study routes.
