Foundation Degree Concept Art

Let your imagination run wild with our Concept Art Foundation Degree (FD). If you have a flair for creating characters, creatures, and environments, this programme will take your career to the next level. Learn to visualise the ideas that modelers, animators, and VFX teams will bring to life in computer games, films, comics and animation.


Our creative programme will allow you to develop technical skills, refine your artistic ability, and bring your visions to life. You’ll learn specialist skills ranging from digital art techniques to traditional drawing. This programme supports your personal development from student to artist. Working across multiple disciplines, you will gain a unique insight into the industry that will allow you to understand how roles work together to create final products.

Our exciting industry links will prepare you for the working world by exposing you to insight from guest lecturers and local practitioners. Based at Quarry Hill Campus, you’ll use specialist art studios and technical suites to unlock your visual ideas and craft your concepts.

We will continue to follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our students and staff and have put in place additional safety measures, including the way we deliver your course.

For Semester 1, we plan to deliver your course through a mixture of online and face to face tuition and we will review this as Government guidelines change in response to COVID-19 developments. 

Under the present guidelines, we plan to deliver your course 15% online and 85% face to face. We will timetable, where possible, so that you come into the UC for a whole day and you will be in a bubble with your fellow students on your course.

Face to face contact will be delivered following guidelines on social distancing and increased health and safety measures.  You will be made fully aware of the current measures in place and be expected to follow the guidance issued.
