Despite the recent expansion of places on foundation degree courses in art and design, its significance to art and design education is under-researched. This article considers how non-traditional students negotiate the uneasy relationship between theory and practice in art and design education by exploring their experience of cultural studies. Using responses from a small group of foundation degree students and BA students at London College of Fashion, qualitative differences were identified in student perceptions of cultural studies tasks and their role in the curriculum.
