What is a postgraduate diploma in art studies? A postgraduate diploma in arts expounds upon the knowledge that students have already acquired from their graduate education in an artistic field. Students are given a chance to hone their artistic skills in a studio space. Courses in painting, drawing, sculpture, tapestry, and textile art are typically included in the curriculum. Students often receive instruction from visiting lecturers and more established artists. There are also opportunities to perform individual research and attend workshops.

The cost of earning a postgraduate diploma in arts varies from institution to institution, and from country to country. The simplest way to gain a broader understanding of potential costs is to contact the school or academic department directly.

Students can find employment in a variety of fields upon earning a postgraduate diploma in arts. Some choose to become independent artists and earn a living solely from their artwork. Others prefer to instruct others and become art teachers or professors. This diploma provides excellent preparation for working in an academic environment.

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. -
