Foundation and pre-degree courses
Application to a pre-degree course, including the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design course (you may know this as a freshman year) usually requires Russian students to have an Upper Secondary School Diploma and a portfolio of work.
Application to an undergraduate course (you may know this as a bachelor's degree) usually requires Russian students to have an Upper Secondary School Diploma and, where needed, a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design or relevant pre-degree qualification, and a portfolio of work.
Application to a postgraduate course usually requires Russian students to have an undergraduate (bachelor's) degree in a subject related to the proposed area of study, a personal statement and, where needed, a study proposal and references. Many of our courses also ask for a portfolio and some also require work experience.
