Creativity Through Skills
International School of Creative Arts aims to be at the forefront of pre-university studies in art and design and equip students, from diverse cultural backgrounds, with the necessary technical and intellectual skills to progress to leading international creative arts universities in both the UK and overseas.
To achieve global recognition as an institution that prepares students of creative arts and design for the top universities in the world. This will be achieved through sustainable operational design and strategic planning aimed at developing excellence in our students' core skills and talents.
ISCA's philosophy is to nurture the creative potential of each individual student and to offer the most artistically energising education to hone talents, sharpen intellect and build self-confidence.
At ISCA we believe that our team of talented creative arts staff combined with a robust commitment to small class sizes creates a unique environment for students to both identify and achieve their future aspirations.
By actively encouraging and developing artistic talents and skills in this way, we provide a specialist arts education that best ensures each student has the opportunity and support to realise their full creative and academic success.
Central Saint Martins FAD Plus
This is an intensive course of study run by Central Saint Martins (CSM). ISCA students progress to FAD Plus upon successful completion of the Creative Learning and Skills Programme (CLASP). By the end of this course, students will have attained the CSM Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, long regarded as the pre-eminent foundation course in the world.
A prerequisite for most creative degrees at top universities, the 13-week Foundation Plus which commences in early June, offers students the valuable possibility of progressing onto a degree course at UAL, without needing to spend a full year on the traditional Foundation Diploma.
The course is unique in offering both specialist and diagnostic modes of study thereby allowing students to explore a wide range of art and design disciplines.
