Students will graduate from the programme with a complete A-Level in Art, Craft and Design.
Following the A-Level specification, the programme comprises workshops, set projects and extra studio sessions for students to develop a broad set of skills in the various artistic disciplines.

A-level Preparatory Programme
This one-term full-time programme of study is designed for students who are interested in joining our A-level classes but who may not be quite ready to join the full course. This may be because they have not previously studied art to a sufficient level or because their English language ability needs further improvement.
Students will be given the opportunity to develop their skills in general art and design and will also be given structured support in the areas requiring further development. If necessary this will include personalised English language tuition to bring students to the level where they could succeed in the A-level course.
This programme can be regarded as a stand-alone short course for students with a general interest in art and design or it can be seen as a preliminary step to an A-level course at ISCA.
Students are able to join ISCA for short specialist art and design courses, up to 6 months in length. These will be tailored to individual needs and can include English language development for those who wish to progress to further education either at ISCA or another institution.
