Access to Higher Education and Foundation Art and design courses in the UK are designed to facilitate access to higher education for students with non-traditional entry qualifications. An Access to HE qualification is equivalent to Level 3 qualifications (e.g. A Levels).
General Access to HE courses can lead to a variety of studies in HE while others provide preparation for specialised HE programmes such as "Access to Teaching".
A Foundation Art and design course is a one-year course designed to prepare a student for entry to degree level art and design programmes. Foundation Art and design courses offers an introductory study to many art and design areas, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, video, computer design, textiles, fashion, three-dimensional design and ceramics.
