    Staffordshire Uni

    Bath Spa College
    Plymouth college of art
    Suffolk uni
    birmingham south andcity


    Are you looking to do a BA in Costume, or a foundation year first, followed by a BA in Costume? I’m a graduate from Plymouth College of Art and did a Foundation year before studying my BA (Hons) in Illustration, and had a great experience doing both courses at PCA.

    I found the transition between doing my Foundation and starting my BA a really encouraging and worthwhile experience. I didn’t feel very confident about my work after finishing my A-levels and was unsure of what area I wanted to specialise in – completing the Foundation course definitely gave me a big confidence boost (and it was a bonus to be able to use all of the great facilities at the College!)

    Plymouth College of Art is one of the few remaining independent art colleges in the country, which means they solely offer art, design, craft and digital courses. It’s the best feeling to be surrounded by other creative people and opens up opportunities to collaborate with students from other practices too. The lecturers at Plymouth College of Art are all practising artists and give you first-hand industry knowledge, advice and contacts, which is really valuable!

    I now work at Plymouth College of Art and if you have any questions or would like to come to the college for a personal tour, I’d be happy to show you around! You can get in touch at [email protected]

    I hope this helps and good luck with your decision!
