Diploma in Arts
Broaden your worldview with the one-year Diploma in Arts, and gain knowledge and skills in a specific arts-related discipline.
You can study degree-level papers from a wide range of subjects – from event management and social sciences to Japanese and psychology.
When you successfully complete the Diploma in Arts, you can cross-credit your papers and transfer to a relevant bachelor’s degree. This programme is also suitable for students who have narrowly missed UE* and want to continue into the Bachelor of Arts or other bachelor’s degrees.
