A diploma is earned through a specialized or public school and is typically completed in a year or two. This certificate serves as an alternative to an associate or bachelor’s degree and can be useful for individuals who know which career field they want to work toward.

What is a diploma in arts? Programs like this involve first establishing a solid foundation in the basics of whatever art form the individual plans on pursuing, whether that be fashion design, visual arts, or graphic design. Despite which topic students choose, it’s likely they will obtain a variety of skills including color science, perspective, composition, and anatomy. Depending on the route, additional education might be required for a solid chance at landing a career.

Students that receive a diploma in arts can expect their level of persistence to increase, as well as confidence in their own abilities and work. Individuals may also find themselves more able to take constructive criticism and apply it to their work efficiently, which is useful whether one is pursuing art professionally or as a hobby. 

With opportunities to work toward a diploma in arts internationally, it’s suggested that individuals narrow down their top schools and do the appropriate research to make a thoughtful decision. Costs can differ between programs.

Receiving a diploma in arts can set students up for an array of career paths that include visual artist, logo designer, photographer, and animator. Students can practice several skills that involve using various equipment, applying visual effects, and working with clients to choose the most fitting media and style, as well as producing sculptures, paintings, and/or drawings.

With dedication, a diploma in arts can be a successful route. This program can be pursued part-time or full-time, in person or online. To find the right school for you, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Higher Diploma in Art & Ecology is the equivalent to the Post Baccalaureate in North America, and is known informally as the ‘Post Bac’. This one-year course is designed for students who wish to develop their artistic practice through engaging with ecology, earth systems and environmental change. Through fine art practice, students investigate how social and earth ecologies coexist within the unique context of the Burren. Students are assisted in finding their voices as ecologically oriented artists and are prepared for application to, and potential enrolment in, an MA / MFA programme. The Post Bac in Art & Ecology is also applicable for students who have a degree in a subject other than fine art and who wish to transfer onto a fine art educational track by progressing to an MA/MFA programme. -
