CEAD Progression

Progression routes for CEAD students

Typically, a CEAD student who is a beginner will start with a summer short course or an autumn non-credit course.

Once you have developed the relevant skills and techniques you can then consider progressing to an Autumn A/C course or a CEAD University Certificate programme in DVI, PDI or VAP. The University Certificates in CEAD and A/C programmes are for the more experienced student and not for beginners.

If you successfully complete a CEAD University Certificate then you can apply for a place on the CEAD part-time Higher Diploma in Art.  

For students who want to progress to a degree programme, it is possible for CEAD Higher Diploma in Art graduates to apply for Advanced Entry on an NCAD Degree programme or the equivalent. More information on Advanced Entry at NCAD
