Once you have successfully completed your HNC, you can progress onto an HND. If you choose to complete your HND with us, you can then choose to complete a top up year at a university to achieve a full Bachelor’s degree. You can also pursue an apprenticeship or enter employment.
Additional Information
There is a requirement of approximately £500 for equipment and portfolios, though you may be eligible for a bursary. Students will be introduced to Creative Suite and would benefit from having access to this at home. There will be an overseas trip approximately £300 plus expenses. This is not compulsory but is recommended.
This course will allow you to become independent in your explorations and thinking. All students are encouraged to consider their own ways of using materials and techniques (using their studio space, specialist rooms and the help of technicians). Projects are set to encourage you to think both creatively and theoretically, showing the wider context that fine art exists within. Areas of study include
