If you’d like a taste of design or art then a Certificate in Visual Arts is the way to go. You’ll be introduced to the basics of art and design—creative thinking, visual communication, specialist skills and critical awareness—through a flexible programme of study with lots of choice. No portfolio is required, just passion.

The Certificate in Visual Arts is made up of four courses from the first year of our BFA and BDes programmes. See the ‘Planning’ tab for more details.

You’ll study with art and design degree students in a range of studio and lecture-based courses. These exciting electives cover everything from critical and contextual studies, to social media, painting, and digital fabrication.
