About CEAD VAP Audit / Credit Modules

The Certificate in Visual Art Practice, is a multi-modular programme for students who want to attend flexibly and complete within one or over three years.   Audit and Credit courses offer students an opportunity to choose a structured course where assessment is optional. Two options are provided for students
taking Audit/Credit courses:

Credit option:

Students submit their work for assessment by tutors and gain appropriate credit and may be used for accumulation purposes towards the completion of a Certificate, Diploma or Degree.

Audit option:

Students follow the full course programme but do not submit their work for assessment and do not gain credit for accumulation purposes.

Students should complete four modules; three studio practice modules and one module in visual culture which is mandatory.  Students should choose a module from within each category in order to progress and accumulate credits.
