The Diploma in Visual Arts and Design is a non-award course, available as a UniAccess-Australia and UniAccess-International program.
The aim is to provide an opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to study a selection of units of interest to them in a program that offers a pathway to an award course. The course is offered on a fee-paying basis and is available to Australian (UniAccess-Australia) and International students (UniAccess-International).
This course is designed for students interested in a broadly-based program that integrates the study of selected units in the areas of studio-based art, graphic design or history and theory of art and design combined with relevant communication and business skills. The course assists students to prepare for a diversity of careers in the visual arts and design industries.
A UniAccess-Australia student who successfully completes eight units specified by a UniAccess program may either leave with a Diploma exit qualification and/or make a direct application to ACU National, against specified criteria, for a place in the Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design (or other courses) in either a Commonwealth-supported or fee-paying place. All applications will be considered on the basis of academic merit.
A UniAccess-International student who successfully completes eight units specified by a UniAccess program may either leave with a Diploma exit qualification or continue their studies with a place in the Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design.
A student who successfully completes four or more units in the Diploma in Visual Arts and Design may exit with a Certificate in Visual Arts and Design.
