UAL Level 2 Diploma

The UAL Diploma Level 2 in Digital Art and Graphic Design course is designed for 16-18 year olds or adults to gain their first level 2 design qualification. It enables students to pursue a career in the visual and creative industries by developing the skills needed to succeed in a competitive environment.

Through project assignments all students will have the opportunity to explore a range of digital and art based design disciplines such as graphic design, illustration, web design, digital photography, art production and visual communication.

The aim of this course is to develop student's skills and a knowledge base in the field of graphic design covering disciplines in 3D design, digital graphics and illustration for the advertising and marketing industries.

The delivery of the programme is through: project assignment work, practical demonstrations, workshops, lectures, mini tasks, group critiques, presentations, contextual studies, historical studies, theory and research.

Each student's individual portfolio will show samples of work which explore digital and artistic techniques, methods and approaches. Students will also develop cultural awareness and a mature attitude towards a potential career in their chosen field.

The course covers core skills such as drawing, creative thinking, design theory, research and communication skills. In addition specific software tool skills will be gained in industry-based packages such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema 4D, web design in HTML5.

This is a one year course programme consisting of 3-4 assignment projects for study and in completion of these 7 units the students will get to write their own project based final major project.

The majority of students who successfully complete the course go on to Further Education. Alternatively students have gone straight into employment/self employment and have developed careers in the industry.

In addition the course has a commitment to develop the student experience by offering regular excursions to all gallery and events throughout Merseyside.

The course includes support to improve literacy and numeracy skills.

As part of the interview process we will be assessing your ability to represent your ideas visually. Please bring a portfolio or samples of your visual work, eg. drawings, sketches, digital art and photograpy. Don't worry if you haven't got any of these at the moment; you still have time before the interview date to produce some examples of how your ideas might look visually. Please ensure you bring these with you. If you arrive without them it will mean we cannot offer you a place on the course.
