The programme units of the BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Fine Art may be considered as a synthesis of the most important elements of professional fine art practice, concerned as they are with underpinning knowledge, fundamental skills and understanding.
Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to delve into the multidimensional aspect of Fine Art theory and practice, tackling a broad range of issues, including spiritual, moral and ethical, as well as environmental and socio-cultural.
The programme culminates with the development of learners’ personal fine art identity, and the presentation of selected artwork through a self-managed fine art exhibition.
The course fosters independent learning and develops learners’ ability to explore, apply and extend their learning in different contexts and situations. Students will also benefit from shared lectures, projects and workshops, and are generally expected to work in multidisciplinary teams on real-life cases.
The course includes a wide variety of assessment methods including design projects, presentations, practical projects and written work. The assessment is continuous throughout the course.
