There is no deadline for applications to Graduate Diploma Art & Design, which has intakes in January, April and July. However, applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to apply as soon as you are ready; if you delay your application, your preferred intake may be full.

What happens next

Your application will be reviewed by our academic staff including the Programme Lead and in some cases Senior Tutors and Admissions Tutors. 

In a small number of instances, it may not be possible to make a decision based on an application alone. In these cases, you will be invited to attend an interview in-person or by video call. Your invitation email will contain full details of the interview and anything you may need to prepare. 

Application outcome

Once your application has been reviewed and interview completed (if applicable), you will receive one of the following application outcomes:

  • a formal offer of a place
  • a place on the waiting list, if the programme is already full
  • an unsuccessful notification

All decisions will be communicated by email.

If you do receive an offer, we encourage all successful applicants to secure their place by returning their acceptance and deposit as soon as possible.
