Art for Architecture

Students will be introduced to a variety of experiences and explore a range of fine art media, techniques and processes. Candidates should explore drawing using a variety of methods and media and should use sketchbooks/workbooks/journals to underpin their work and realise the importance of process as well as product. Areas of study will include: Painting […]

Graphic Communication

Students will be introduced to a variety of experiences and explore a range of graphic media, techniques and processes. Candidates will explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to fine art, past and present, European and non-European. This will be integral to the investigating and making process allowing the candidates to demonstrate their understanding of […]

Fine Art

Students will be introduced to a variety of experiences and explore a range of fine art media, techniques and processes. Candidates will explore relevant images, along with artefacts and resources relating to fine art, past and present, European and non-European. This will be integral to the investigating and making process allowing the candidates to demonstrate […]

Art

Whilst there is a degree of flexibility within these courses depending upon individual students’ needs, it is expected that students start these courses with a competent level of technical skill and creativity. It is recommended that students study the following combination of areas of study depending what they what to read at university. All of […]

Computing

Unit 1: In this course, you will learn the basics of programming using the C++ language. C++ is a programming language widely used in University and industry and the basic commands that you will learn can easily be applied to other languages that you may study in the future including Microsoft C# and Java. This […]
