After completing your Foundation Year (4 consecutive terms), you are automatically accepted onto the Diploma Course. The Diploma Course curriculum includes
further drawing, painting and advanced painting and consists of 8 terms of study. Painting study begins at completion of the drawing curriculum (which
takes on average 7 terms from the beginning of the Foundation Year) and then, when a student is ready, advanced painting. Students who have completed
the Diploma Course may choose to stay for an additional year of specialization if they have completed the required exercises on the curriculum.
