This programme is aimed at prospective Design students who meet the minimum admission requirements for mainstream but may fall short of meeting the additional portfolio or entrance test requirements. 

With an exciting multi-disciplinary curriculum, this enriched full-year program gives you the foundation to confidently succeed in mainstream design programmes.

We have offerings in four different programmes and you will learn about the various aspects of design that are common to these disciplines, transferable principles of design and some of the fundamentals unique to each.
