best art courses around the UK
If you are creative
and looking for something different on your CV to make you stand
out from the crowd, why not explore some of the best art courses
in the UK? The UK is home to some of the greatest universities,
offering some of the most rewarding art courses in the world.
A great art course is one that challenges the mind in more ways
than one. It seeks to find the balance between practical and academic
work, to allow the student to learn with a wider focus.
There are courses available for people at all different levels,
whether you are a beginner to the world of art, or already an
upcoming or accomplished artist. Results from learning institutions
in the UK speak for themselves - Brunel University was named by
the Telegraph as the top university in the UK for artists, reporting
that, on average, 75% of students find work within 6 months of
completing their course.
At undergraduate level, there is a wide variety of entry requirements
- one example being the University of Dundee, who ask for any
art and design subject at grade B, and any other appropriate literary
subject, also at grade B.
If applying for a postgraduate course, most entry requirements
are for an upper second-class degree or higher. However, the main
concern for international students would be the IELTS course,
which is a UK government approved English language course that
can be used to prove your ability to speak the English language.
