A positive introduction of the Extended UAL Level 3 Art and Design course has been made with a good number taking up the course. Students from the UAL Level 3 Art and Design Diploma course are able to collaborate with the UAL Extended students in lessons to further develop thinking skills. The course is significant as for the first time students can pick a Level 3 art course which is worth the equivalent of 3 A-levels and has been created by the University of Arts Awarding body to allow students to focus on developing the creative skills and thinking desired to pursue an art-based career.
