Visualise ideas using different media and gain experience in developing your practical skills, 2D and 3D design, and research. Enrol now and embark on exciting careers as Industrial Designers, Interior Designers or Graphic Designers.

The Foundation in Design is a one-year programme which provides the essential preparation for entry into our Degree programmes in Art, Design and Multimedia. The programme focuses on building creative thinking, research and drawing skills. Students learn how to visualise ideas using different media and develop practical skills in two and three dimensions, exploring issues of space, structure, surface, texture and colour. They experience and experiment across all areas of art and design, and later concentrate on their chosen field.

This programme aims to instill:

  • The elements and principles of design
  • The skills and techniques of drawing
  • Creative thinking and problem solving techniques
  • The ability to carry out primary and secondary research
  • The ability to communicate ideas visually and orally

Students of the foundation programme will enter a stream related to their studies as they proceed to their degree programme. They won’t have to study subjects unrelated to their planned career line. Key focus for all foundation programmes is to develop ICT and creative skills.

The foundation programme relies on intensive English training that is applied through communication modules. Native English speakers can spend more time on professional writing, reporting, creative writing, etc.
