Discover Fine Art and Design in Education

As a teacher of fine art and design, you will be intensively involved with art and design. By making and designing yourself, by visiting exhibitions, by staying up to date on new developments. And above all by developing teaching and education yourself. You can do that in general secondary or secondary vocational education or for art institutions and other cultural venues, bringing pupils, participants or visitors to festivals, etc. into contact with art and design. You will supervise them in the creative process and in developing their own talents. And you will link in with personal fascinations and social themes. In this way, they will discover at first hand the power of art and what it is like to give expression to what matters to you.

After the course, you may use the title Bachelor of Education (BEd) and you will have a first-degree teaching qualification. This allows you to work at all levels of education, but also outside education (e.g. for museums, cultural institutions, artists' initiatives, festivals and online platforms). The professional practice is very diverse; our former students work not just as teachers but also as makers, educators and curators.

Enthusing others or wanting to work with people is key on this course. If that’s what you enjoy, this is the right place for you.
