We’ve developed this course for students who have not completed a traditional foundation course or who are not quite ready to go on to First Year degree study, but who know which subject they wish to take. The Year Zero route provides a smooth transition to degree courses in the Arts disciplines at the University. This course is the first stage of a Bachelor’s Degree – it is not a standalone course. Following the successful completion of the year you’ll then progress on to the first year of your chosen degree. You’ll gain the fundamental knowledge, critical awareness and practical skills which are essential for all Arts students. Our emphasis is on building your confidence and fostering your creative potential. Supported by a dedicated team of professional staff, you’ll learn in a stimulating studio environment where you can explore and experiment with materials, processes and ideas.
