Art, Design & Photography

All 16-18 year-old students at City of Westminster College will follow a full-time Study Programme. Here Craig Hanlon-Smith, Deputy Director of 16-18 Programmes explains what that means.

There are five main specialist areas for you to choose from within Art & Design: Fashion and Textiles, Photography, Fine Art, Graphic Design and 3D Design. In each of the five areas you will be taught by an experienced teaching team. They will push you to reach exciting, imaginative and challenging solutions, where aesthetics and function are balanced and ideas are thought-provoking and visually stimulating.

We offer courses from Level 1 to Level 4, so whatever stage you’re at in your education, we can guide you in developing your practical and academic skills. Our goal is to equip you with the tools you need to move onto Higher Education or straight into work.


We frequently work in partnership with a range of external companies, which can provide work-related opportunities and the chance to exhibit work on a public platform. The photography courses in particular are supported by Trend Micro, this relationship can benefit students by providing a real design brief, external exhibitions, the opportunity to build professional contacts and, for some, financial support towards study. Throughout all of our courses we will embed employability skills and support you in applying for further study or employment. Technology and its use will play a key role in your study and creative practice. Vocationally, we will provide you with an awareness of historical, contemporary and emerging Art & Design issues, within your chosen specialist area.
