The Certificate in Visual Arts Practice is one of a number of accredited courses available to mature students seeking flexible quality learning opportunities at NCAD. The course contains multiple modules offering choice to students, who can construct a sequential programme of learning from a multidisciplinary modular framework.
What are Audit/Credit courses?
Audit/Credit (A/C) courses are part-time modules offered in a range of Fine Art and Design subjects. A/C courses provide students with an option to study part-time and build credit toward a recognised third level qualification. Choose from the list in the table above.
Two options are provided for students taking Audit/Credit courses:
• Audit option: students participate in the module but do not submit their work for assessment and do not gain credit for accumulation purposes.
• Credit option: students submit their work for assessment by tutors and gain appropriate credit which is certified and may be used for accumulation purposes towards the completion of a Certificate, Diploma or Degree.
Students who successfully complete a Certificate course with CEAD can apply to the part-time AD082 Higher Diploma in Art NFQ Level 8.
