A 60 credit Level 9 qualification in Creative Practice available over eight months from October to May, with the option to progress to an MA Award.
The Post-Graduate Diploma (PG Dip) in Creative Practice offers artists, designers and filmmakers a creative and critically informed environment in which to develop and consolidate their practice. The course will support imaginative, experimental and interdisciplinary enquiry through a range of media and approaches.
Students will choose one of four strands in which to base their study:
Contemporary art studio practice
Film and lens based media
Socially engaged practice
The course is structured so as to balance general and specific demands of various practices. Students will be encouraged to work collaboratively as well as be independent, self-directed critical thinkers. The emphasis of the course is on the student completing a large practice-based project.This culminates with the production of a final exhibition, film screening or project presentation.
A PG Dip Graduate may return in a future year to undertake an additional thesis to demonstrate appropriate critical contextualization of the practice based work to achieve the MA award.
