• Designed for students who want to spend time learning in the UK, but do not necessarily want to spend as much as 2-3 years studying, our short study abroad courses let you work fully integrated alongside degree or diploma students for one, two or three terms in an exciting, world famous creative University.

• You may have limited previous experience and wish to join a basic level introductory course or you may have a degree already and wish to practice your skills in the UK with advanced students.

• Your abilities and qualifications will be assessed before you are offered a place, and we will discuss the most suitable programme of learning with you.

• All students are asked to submit examples of work with their application.
