Art Intermediate offers two different levels of study; which you will be allocated to depending on your skills and experience.
Level 1 is for students with an interest, but little or no experience in studying Art and Design. If you’ve studied it at GCSE level, you may be more suited towards the Level 2 course. You will be able to discuss which level is right for you at your interview – so there’s no need to worry about it!
