About this course

The Creative Arts include a wide range of skills and specialisms; the key to this qualification is the development of that interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding. Specialist tutors and visiting practitioners will encourage a broad educational experience, breaking down boundaries between art and design specialisms in order to support you in exploring new and exciting areas whilst extending your portfolio.  We aim to provide our graduates with discipline expertise and instil a critical knowledge of art practice that is underpinned by the experience, research and industry expertise of the academic staff.

This course is designed to allow the transfer of skills to a real working environment, with the opportunity to work closely with industry through practical work, live briefs, industry practice and independent and negotiated projects developing communication, presentation and team working skills.  We are committed to producing graduates who have already engaged in the world of work and are enterprising and entrepreneurial by nature.

With the creative arts recognised as a growth area across the country, you will learn how to find your place in the market as well as developing your skills.

Contemporary Art Practice Foundation Degree is taught at our campus in Longbridge, Birmingham.
