About this course


Course option

2.0years

Full-time | 2021

This foundation degree is a practical exploration of the applied arts, where you will have the opportunity to develop diverse creative skills within drawing, painting, sculpture, textiles, print, design, digital and mixed media arts. You will be guided through the generation of ideas, concepts and issues in art and how to communicate meaning visually. You will be encouraged to explore a broad range of processes and workshops underpinned by a strong and individual understanding of concept and context in art.

During this course you will produce a wide-ranging body of work, which will evidence your professional capabilities and prepare you for employment. Using the skills you have
developed, you will have the opportunity to create high-quality personal and individual work.

The course has a strong focus on employability, and ensures that you gain the essential skills required to work in the arts. You will be encouraged to work independently, and by exploring the arts industry locally and nationally, you will have a broad range of career opportunities when you graduate.

Employability, industry experience, entrepreneurial skills and preparation for employment are integral to the programme. Opportunities for trips, visits, visiting lecturers, work experience and live briefs are accessible to all. The strong industry links developed between staff and artists, designers, arts agencies and local businesses within South Devon will support the students’ professional experience. In addition wider links, both nationally and internationally, such as Fujitsu, Pro-Direct, The Tate Modern London and University of the Arts London Colleges CCW will further strengthen students’ opportunities in the wider Arts world.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
