To help get you up to speed, this one-year foundation course provides all the creative, technical and study skills needed for entry onto a degree-level art, design or fashion course. Upon completion, you will be able to progress onto a range of art-, design- and fashion- related courses here at Southampton Solent.
The course begins with a five-week group project. This enables students to mix with like-minded peers and helps them to settle in quickly. This project also helps students to decide which area they might like to follow at a later stage.
The following ten weeks are spent introducing students to the world of art, design and fashion. This includes design history, vocabulary, methods and academic foundation. This ten-week block will also give students the opportunity to learn and apply two-dimensional and three-dimensional visualisation techniques, giving them the tools required to conduct their final project.
This final project takes place in the last fifteen weeks of the course and is based around the specific discipline that the student will go on to study. The project will be supported by tuition in visual presentation techniques, enabling students to communicate their concepts, development processes and final proposals. Students will also receive instruction in verbal communication and presentation techniques, increasing their confidence in pitching design ideas.
Fashion Degrees: *Research and Ideas Development*Materials and Methods*Evaluation and Reflection*Creative Application*Personal Development Planning* Degree-related Project*

To accommodate individual differences in both learning styles and communication skills, the foundation course will apply a programme of summative assessment methods. This programme will include portfolios, reports, verbal presentations and reflective statements. Each unit will employ a mix of methods appropriate for that unit. For example, the unit 'Personal Development Planning' will be assessed by reflective statement and an accompanying portfolio.
