You apply directly to each college – applications information is available on the individual college websites. Below is a selection of local providers:

Art and Design Foundation Diplomas

Foundation Diploma in Art and Design Factsheet

If you are planning to study an Art and Design degree course at University, some courses may require you to complete a one-year Foundation Diploma in Art and Design. These are generally available at Colleges of Further Education including Leeds Arts University, Harrogate College and York College.

They are diagnostic courses and enable you to study a broad range of disciplines in art and design before specialising and preparing a portfolio of art and design relevant to what you want to study at Higher Education.

Foundation Diplomas do not attract the same funding as Higher Education courses but you may be eligible for accommodation and travel bursaries. You do not have to pay fees if you are 19 years of age and under when you start the course.
