A high percentage of our students progress on to Art Foundation and Degree courses at Art Colleges, after DLD, in London, across the UK and internationally. DLD is very proud of its 100% record in placing students onto Art Courses on completion of their A Level Studies. This route into graduate study enables students to develop their studies further in various disciplines such as Art & Design, Photography, Textiles, Fashion, Design, New Media and Architecture.

The creative Arts industries make a significant and culturally highly important social contribution to the fabric of our country and the UK economy – accounting for 7.9% of GDP, a figure that is growing significantly faster than the economy as a whole. Career paths in art and design can include becoming a Professional Artist, a Graphic, Web, Textiles or Fashion Designer, a Photographer or Architect. There is also the possibility of becoming an Illustrator, an exhibition curator, or working in gallery education. With good training, qualifications and professional skills in Art & Design the list of possible career routes is endless!

The Arts provision at DLD is a thriving department that will build and develop your skills and creativity, as well as prepare you for further study, and an exciting career in the Arts.

This year DLD Art Students have won various regional and national awards. This includes first, second and highly commended awards in the annual ISA Art Competition
