Course details

Diploma of Art and Creativity (Advanced) Level 7
NZQF Level 7

About the course

The Diploma of Art and Creativity (Advanced) is a natural progression from the level 6 programme, building on each student’s existing skill base and working towards the development of professional practice.

Students will articulate the purpose of their creativity and are expected to produce a body of experimental work for shared discussion. They will create major work for public showing at the conclusion of the programme.

Entry requirements

The qualification provides a pathway from the:

New Zealand Diploma in Creativity (Level 6)

New Zealand Diploma in Arts & Design (Level 6)

New Zealand Diploma in Fashion (Level 6)

Students who have not completed at the previous programme level can apply for entry using TLC’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. (Note: acceptance via the RPL process is not automatic. Evidence presented must demonstrate sufficient ability at the required level).

Applicants are also required to submit a portfolio and participate in an interview, the results of which become part of the application process.
