About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2022

This HNC is highly regarded by employers and academic institutions and provides the opportunity for those with some art and design experience to develop a broad knowledge of art and design, experimenting with a variety of art media and techniques specific for art practices. It is ideal if you are at the beginning of your career or looking to improve your qualifications or career prospects in the creative industries.

You will be taught through a combination of lectures and in-class practical activities that help to embed learning and appeal to a variety of learning styles. Your learning will be supported by Moodle – an on-line electronic resource platform managed by your module tutors, by the excellent LRC at the Aireville Campus in addition to the College’s Specialist Support Centre.

You will need to undertake significant independent study outside of taught sessions. Students will spend the equivalent of seven hours per week in College, with informative lectures, workshops and tutorials, however there will be an expectation that students will spend the double amount of time, developing, ideas, techniques and processes outside formal College time.

The Art & Design (Art Practice) HNC is a nationally recognised qualification in its own right and is the first year of a HND course. The HND will be offered providing there are a sufficient number of students.
