Studying Here

Our undergraduate programmes are structured as modules, including core modules and option modules, which you will elect to study. Our option modules are career focussed and informed by industry, allowing students to supplement their core programme with a range of additional transferable skills.

The first year of your programme is diagnostic. During this time, we will work together to determine your strengths and interests by exploring all areas of your chosen subject. In your second and third years, selection of option modules will allow you to develop your talents and, on some programmes, select a predetermined ‘pathway’ which is supported by experienced academics and specialist technicians.

Group work is a central part of your experience and will be sustained throughout the duration of your studies. With a substantial support structure for peer group learning, you will develop a critical ability to critique your own work. As you progress through your studies, your skills in project and time management will advance in conjunction with your ability to visually and verbally present your work.

Assessment of your work is on-going, rather than exam based, and in your final year you will present your work at Winchester School of Art’s annual Degree Show in June. Typically, this event includes a Private View to which we invite the creative industries. In addition to a degree show at Winchester School of Art, individual programmes may host their own independent shows at external venues, traditionally in London.

Studying abroad as part of your degree can add depth to both your academic and personal development. Our undergraduate curriculum has been designed to allow you to spend the second semester of your second year abroad, through key international partnerships via the Erasmus Exchange programme.
