Pre-degree courses


Our Colleges provide a range of full-time pre-degree courses designed to help you build on your existing knowledge, identify your particular area of interest and develop the skills, experience and portfolio of work needed to apply for an undergraduate course.

The application process varies depending on the course you’ve chosen and whether you’re a Home or international student (your tuition fee status).

Courses offered

Foundation diplomas in Art and Design

Open to applications from Home and International students, this is a common route into practice-based undergraduate study at UAL.

Please note that Home students can only apply for one of these two courses.

At the point of applying you’ll be asked to say whether you’d like to apply in diagnostic or specialist mode (see the course pages for more information).
