The BA Creative Art and Design Practice (Top-up) (Hons) year from University of Derby builds upon the unique entrepreneurial ethos and production of contemporary, professional quality work that is initially addressed in the FdA programme.
The course seeks to develop and facilitate your independent and experiential learning through a range of opportunities, both project-based and self-directed in a stimulating and exciting environment. The course is both academically challenging, developing theoretical awareness of contemporary and vocationally relevant practice with a good balance of creative and academic work, being roughly two-thirds practical and one-third theoretical.
There will be a public exhibition as a conclusion to the course and a specific module has been designed to encourage self-promotion in a current creative manner considering online opportunities and the development of entrepreneurial acumen.
