The Arts Foundation Year at Lincoln provides an alternative integrated entry route onto a wide range of degree-level programmes in the College of Arts. Students on the Arts Foundation Year study common modules that allow students the opportunity to experiment, explore, and develop the core skills and knowledge required to pursue a degree within the creative arts and become increasingly more specialised as the course progresses. The combination of modules has been tailored to the needs of the degree programme that the students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year. The course has also been designed to support students who know they want to study a creative subject but are unsure of which pathway to take.

Course details

Modules

The Foundation programme is structured around modules that are designed to develop core creative and academic skills needed for successful University study. The practical modules will be taught in the studio though thematic projects that can be interpreted through a range of disciplines. As the programme progresses students will work closely with specialist staff and students from their chosen pathway, and will be expected to become increasingly independent. The final module provides an opportunity for students to complete an extended project, which aims to develop students' personal creative direction.

Assessment method

The way students are assessed may vary between modules. Examples of assessment methods that are used include creative works, written assignments, presentations, sketchbooks, documentation of your working process and development of ideas. Group work is a feature of contemporary creative practice and is assessed through presentations, shared outcomes, and records of individual contribution towards a shared goal.

Additional fee information

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs. With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost.
