This two-year course* is an attractive alternative to A-levels, and provides a transformative bridge between school and university. It offers students who have an interest in the visual arts the chance to explore and develop their creative practice within a specialist, stimulating and supportive environment.
The Extended Diploma in Creative Practice: Art, Design and Communication gives students an in-depth introduction to the creative industries, along with a broad foundation of related knowledge, skills and attributes associated to the creative process.
The course has been designed to provide the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to help you to discover your talents and strengths in a wide range of visual disciplines, you will specialise in one of four pathways: Fashion & Textiles, Fine Art, Graphic Communication and 3D Design.
*Our previous Extended Diploma in Art & Design course was revised to be more coursework based with a focus on preparation for progression into the creative sector. We have therefore renamed the course to Extended Diploma in Creative Practice: Art, Design and Communication to encompass the new modules.
