BTEC Diploma in Foundation Studies in Art & Design

The College runs a one year post A Level course for students who wish to go on to study Art at university. In 2015/2016 there were 27 students and all successfully completed the course; 85% gained distinctions and merits. It is the 24th year in succession that there has been a 100% pass rate on this course.

University Entrance

This summer over 700 of our students progressed to over 100 different universities including 188 to the Russell Group and 13 going to Oxford and Cambridge. Others went straight into employment or embarked upon higher level apprenticeships with the distinct advantage of excellent A Level results plus the maturity and skills that they acquired during their time at QE.
