Art School

Some students will want to specialise in Art in years 12 and 13 in order to progress to Art School after leaving boarding school. In general we use the description "Art School" to mean a University offering Art degree courses. It may be a department of a mainstream University like Kingston or Goldsmiths, or a specialist Uni like University of the Arts, London, which actually encompasses 5 separate art universities.

In order to get entry to an Art School, you will generally need a good pass in one or more A Levels in a creative art subject. There is quite a variety offered by the separate A Level exam boards, including Fine Art, Art & Design, Graphics, Photography, Textiles and History of Art. We can find you the best boarding school with a really creative Art department to suit the student’s ambitions.

After boarding school, it is generally necessary to take an Art Foundation Programme over 6 to 12 months, which generally showcases the student's talents by building a portfolio of work to present to the target Universities. Some boarding schools will run an Art Foundation Programme themselves but Universities also run them.

Technically it is possible to get a University offer without a Foundation Programme but most students take the FP route.

We have a lot of experience in this sector. Do not fail to ask for our advice and request a copy of our eguide "Getting into Art School"
