Plymouth College of Art has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
Our Extended Degrees offer a dynamic and supportive environment in which you will be encouraged to explore and develop core skills and competencies as a creative practitioner.
- Identify your personal practice through access to college-wide facilities.
- Learn in the unique environment and study experience of a specialist art college, characterised by creativity, experimentation and imagination.
- Successful completion of the first year guarantees you a place on one of our full undergraduate programmes.
The first year of an Extended Degree is not a qualification in its own right, but when you successfully complete it you are guaranteed a place on our full undergraduate programme. You’ll develop confidence in your use of drawing, visual research, contextual studies, digital imaging and design methods, and you’ll have the chance to experiment with a range of materials, equipment, processes and software. As the year goes by you’ll specialise in your chosen undergraduate subject (illustration, graphic design, fine art, etc.), helping you to become a confident, independent and creative artist, designer or maker.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.

Additional entry requirements
Your application will tell us about your qualifications and previous experience, but studying the arts is about more than can be captured on forms. We need to find out about your creative potential, your abilities and idiosyncrasies, so we will invite you to talk about your work with a member of our HE academic team. You can tell us about your aspirations, and why you want to study at the college. It is also a good moment to find out what we can offer you. We encourage you to visit the college, so that you can see our facilities, meet our teaching and technical staff, and discuss any other queries you may have; however we appreciate this may not be possible, and are happy to talk to you via an online platform (such as Google Meet or similar).
