Why study this course? This four-year degree course includes an intensive foundation year (Year 0), which will enable you to progress onto one of our art or design undergraduate degree courses at London Met's School of Art, Architecture and Design. It is both preparatory and diagnostic, allowing you to explore a number of different directions prior to choosing a specialism at the end of the year. It will also provide you with the skills required for your subsequent three years of study. More about this course As a start you’ll undertake a broad range of short studio and workshop projects in visual imagery and practical making. These will help you to develop techniques that are common across all of our foundation year courses and introduce you to a work ethic of experimentation and open-mindedness. Following this you will approach open-ended, interpretive projects that will help you to establish a personal perspective and sense of direction. All of our foundation year programmes allow you to develop techniques in:
- observational, technical and creative drawing
- 2D and 3D composition
- framing, sequence/series and narrative
- studio and workshop skills
- conceptual modelling
The Year 0 course of the extended degree is made up of four modules, covering all areas relevant to the study of the spatial disciplines study at introductory level. Example Year 0 modules include: Critical & Contextual Studies: Foundation (core, 30 credits) Project (core, 30 credits) Techniques (core, 30 credits) and Workbook (core, 30 credits)
You'll be assessed through project work, essays and an individual portfolio.
