A postgraduate certificate is useful for recent secondary school graduates and working professionals who wish to develop their career path. It can often give a deeper understanding of a particular subject matter, without taking as long as a formal degree.

What is a postgraduate certificate in art studies? This preliminary award can be used to start an associate's, bachelor's or even master's degree in fields such as history, philosophy, writing and many other subjects related to the arts. It is a launching point for wherever you want to go in your education, career and life. Some institutions also offer visual art and design courses as part of this certificate. The structure varies from studio workshop to formal class setting.

A postgraduate certificate in arts seeks to teach analytical and research skills that are useful in all aspects of life. Depending on the institution, you will have a finished portfolio of work, which is another benefit to this award.

Because postgraduate certificates are unique to each institution, their costs are also varied. Some factors include length of coursework, instructor experience level and the size of the school itself. Some of the school's standard fees may also apply.

If you are already on your chosen career track, then a certificate in arts can be useful to quickly expand your knowledge in a particular area. This increases your chances for promotion or a raise. For those seeking employment, this focused knowledge looks good in a variety of job settings, from research to media to industry. A certificate can gain you entry level positions in your chosen field, with the intention of learning more about the subject at your employer's direction.

Certificates usually take a few months, but they vary depending on the institution and subject matter. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

These studies are offered only by the Warsaw School of Photography and Graphic Design. No additional courses are required in painting, drawing and related subjects. They allow the student to have more time to concentrate in their area of interest. The student is granted a Certificate or a Diploma by the Warsaw School of Photography and Graphic Design. This Diploma is not accredited by the Polish Ministry of Research and Higher Education and is not equivalent to a B.A. However, the Diploma, the thesis and any other quality work accomplished by students during their stay at our School allows them to build a significant portfolio which opens the doors to get employment in their area of interest. A Certificate is granted after one or two years of studies. A Diploma is granted after three years of studies and the presentation of a qualified set of works. It normally lasts three years and is concentrated on the Photography courses offered by the Warsaw School of Photography and Graphic Design. Professionals and artistic students from other schools or universities who want to deepen their knowledge, develop their visual sensitivity and perfect their craftmanship may enroll in our Professional and Artistic Programme for a year or two. They may select an individual programme of studies provided the specific chosen courses are not scheduled at the same time. -

Curatorial Studies at KASK considers curation – from the latin ‘cura’, to care for – to be a vital link between cultural production and the wider social sphere. In this expanded definition the curatorial crosses the entire spectrum of cultural production, from historical and artistic research to the documentation and archives of displays and the organisation of events. At KASK, Curatorial Studies students are confronted with the diverse possibilities of the curatorial – from the collection, conservation and study of modern and contemporary art to developing news ways of making art public through on- and off-line displays, publications, pedagogical, social and performative projects. -
