UAL Level 2 Award and Diploma in Art and Design

The UAL Level 2 Award and Diploma in Art and Design has been developed to provide students with an interest in art and design with the opportunity to explore the materials, methods and processes that support art and design activities, and to begin to develop some related technical skills.

The qualifications draw upon established approaches to teaching, learning and assessment that are successfully proven to appeal to and engage students seeking practical study over a more academic study route. The qualification's structure provides a linked introduction to the broad context within which art and design activity sits.
