Certificate of Higher Education in Art and the Environment

UCAS Code: W192

This unique one year Certificate of Higher Education with progression routes has been designed to allow the freedom to explore current aesthetic, political, cultural and environmental issues with the understanding that the studio extends beyond the indoor space.

The Certificate of Higher Education in Art and the Environment aims to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of art in theory and practice, allied to knowledge of a range of related creative activities. It seeks to look outwards from the start, having a clear focus on the world of employment from the beginning.

Students will develop an individual approach and gain the required skills to successfully become a creative professional.

Employability is a key theme within the course to prepare students for a working life in the full range of creative practices.

A key aspect of the course is the opportunity for students to direct their learning towards personal interests and vocational aspirations. You'll develop increasing independence and self-reliance in preparation for lifelong skills and occupational resilience.
