Student Success Mary Arber Foundation degree in Fashion and Jewellery Mary reached the final stage of the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum ‘Inspired by ...’ competition. The competition is the VandA’s annual art, craft and design competition which encourages students to use the museum’s collections as a source of inspiration for their own work. Mary’s work, ‘Memento Mori’, is an unusual necklace made from antique pins. It was inspired by the tradition of women wearing mourning jewellery following the death of a loved one.

“It’s only because of the Craven College course that I had the opportunity to enter this competition. I was delighted to be short listed and it was a very humbling and exciting experience delivering work to such an awe inspiring place.”

The necklace was exhibited along with other finalists work in the VandA for several weeks.

A Foundation degree combines both academic and vocational skills through collaboration between employers and college. The full-time route is studied over two years. Part-time options are usually over three years.

Employers and universities appreciate the value of professional qualifications such as the AAT, CIM or ILM which are recognised and shaped by industry and are often an alternative route into a specific profession. These higher level courses are included in this directory to enable you to make an informed choice regarding this important step in your professional career.

A completed Foundation degree (240 credits) is the equivalent to the first two years of an Honours degree which are normally packaged into modules of 20 credits each. In this way you build and accumulate credits towards the final degree. After completing the Foundation degree you can enter or continue in employment or choose a top-up degree to achieve a full degree.

Full and part-time NVQs NVQs enable those in employment to use all their current, relevant work experiences as evidence towards a higher level qualification, demonstrating how higher level knowledge and skills are applied in the workplace.
