All of our courses are awarded by the prestigious University of the Arts London (UAL), giving you a qualification certified by a world-renowned University.
 

Is it for me?

If you love everything creative, working alongside our specialist staff will help you develop your artistic talent. We are looking for students with the ambition to succeed to the highest of standards and thrive off of seeing individuality coming through from our students.

 

What will I do?

You will gain a hands on commercial experience preparing you for entry into the creative industry or further study at University. Milton Keynes College could take you up to degree level qualifications such as a Higher National Certificate or Diploma (HNC/HND).

You’ll be expected to work on live briefs, within the Fashion, Retail, Graphic Design, Photography, Performing Arts industry. Then at the end of the academic year exhibit your portfolio to the public at our end of year show at Middleton Hall, thecentre:mk. We encourage collaboration between courses, for example fine artists studying with budding film-makers and fashion designers working alongside performers and musicians, which will enable us to put on the most spectacular show possible.
