Programme Structure The ideal student may be of any age or background, but is typically an A level, BTEC Extended Diploma, or other Level 3 qualification student, currently studying locally or elsewhere, in a school or FE college. Qualifications are important, however our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people who demonstrate a strong commitment to art and design and we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. To assess student suitability for the course we arrange interviews for all applicants, at which their skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as qualifications and a portfolio of work.

Visit Us The faculty hold official open days, details of which can be found on our website, but we welcome students at any time of the year. To arrange a visit contact: see details above.

The course is made up of 6 modules. During Semester 1 students complete 3 modules: Introduction to Art and Design provides a broad introduction the studio environment delivered through a carousel of specialist area projects. Experimentation to Specialisation encourages experimentation, and guides students towards specialist study choices. Students produce a written assignment. Developing Specialist Practice and Preparing for Progression permits students to develop their practice and assists them in the preparation of a portfolio of visual and practical work to support progression onto further study.

During Semester 2 students complete 3 further Modules: Developing Personal Practice provides a further period for the development of personal practice and the portfolio. Students work in an increasingly independent manner and apply the knowledge and experience gained during Semester 1. Major Project: Development and Theoretical Approaches requires that students extend their visual and contextual research to produce a written outcome and development towards a major project. Major Project: Realisation and Presentation requires students to produce a substantial body of work and an appropriate exhibition of outcomes. The modules are delivered through contextual introductions to projects, a range of workshops and classes, lectures and study visits. Students are guided and assessed through group and individual tutorials and critiques. Contextual and historical studies are embedded into all the modules.

Cymorth Myfyrwyr

Bywyd Myfyrwyr yn Abertawe

Mae cymorth sgiliau astudio ar gael i bob myfyriwr sydd ag angen cymorth gyda’u hastudiaethau, a darperir gwybodaeth, cyngor a chymorth ymarferol ac emosiynol o ansawdd uchel i bob myfyriwr er mwyn iddynt allu cyrraedd eu potensial llawn.

Llety O ran llety, Abertawe yw un o’r lleoedd rhataf yn y wlad i fyfyrwyr fyw ynddo. Mae gan YDDS Abertawe 5 neuadd breswyl sydd wedi’u lleoli ar ddau wahanol gampws. Hefyd, mae yna amrywiaeth gwych o lety preifat i fyfyrwyr yng nghanol y ddinas, gan gynnwys blociau preswyl a thai.
