Description

This course is also available as an NQ at our Portree campus and the course content will be updated soon to reflect both courses. If you would like more information, please contact info.nwh@uhi.ac.uk. 

The National Certificate Art & Design is a one-year course located in the distinctive location of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides.  The Island has a diverse landscape and is renowned for a rich natural history and fascinating archaeological past. The Hebridean islands also retain their unique Gaelic culture and language.

The course attracts a diverse group of learners from the islands and further afield, and is made up of younger students moving on from school as well as those returning to education. With small group sizes and the input of a number of specialised tutors, the learning experience is full of new challenges and creative opportunities. Portfolio preparation is embedded into the course structure for students intending to apply on into Higher Education art courses.

A particular feature of the course is its location in Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre, the award winning arts venue in North Uist. With a changing exhibition programme, and stunning waterfront studios, this is a vibrant hub of creative and cultural activity.

Applicants should aim for 3 National 5 passes or equivalent, preferably including Art and English. Applicants will also be asked to show examples of their work, particularly drawing, at interview which will help determine their level of experience.

Applications to the course are welcome from adults returning to education who may not possess the entry requirements.
