Find out more about the TEF.

The HND Art and Design (Art Practice) is a Fine Art course run over two years. This is a nationally recognised course which is equivalent to the 1st year of an art school undergraduate degree (level 4), and the second year (level 5) is the equivalent to the 2nd year of an undergraduate degree. The course is designed to help you discover and develop your individual abilities and strengths. Throughout the course you will be required to learn and demonstrate technical skills and critical judgement which will inform your work. You will be supported in the process of developing and maturing your ideas and concepts, being able to present them in both written and verbal form. The course also aims to increase your professional attitude to your art practice which you will need to demonstrate in the mid-year and end-of-year exhibitions. In addition, considerable time is spent helping you with your portfolio selection and interview practice if you are applying for a degree or MA study. We hope the HND will give you confidence to progress with your ideas, provide encouragement and support to build a new body of work and to exhibit as professional artists. We offer you the opportunity to further specialise and refine your professional practise in a supportive and stimulating environment

Students undertaking higher level education need to have a commensurate level of understanding of the English language so as to be able to achieve their qualification. In the case of applicants for whom English is a second language, the interviewer and Central Admissions Team must assure themselves of the applicant’s ability to function at IELTS English Level 5.5 (or equivalent). This is in line with the requirements of the awarding and validating bodies. Where applicants do not hold an IELTS qualification at 5.5 or equivalent, the Central Admissions will ask the applicant to sit an online test (BKSB) to check the suitability of the applicant’s English level prior to interview. Photographic identification will be required. Applicants who have recently completed (i.e. in the last 2 years) a formal programme of study in English at an appropriate level (such as a level 3 BTEC or ‘A’ level) prior to starting their Higher National are considered to be at a suitable level of English without requiring additional evidence..
