The HND in Art and Design (Arts Practice) is a two-year programme providing students with a specialist vocational grounding in art and design. There will be a strong emphasis on the development of both individual creative practice and an understanding of professional and employment-focused skills. The programme will also provide students with a higher level of contextual awareness of art and design practices. Our goal is to prepare you for a successful career within the creative arts industry.
