Reach new heights

Personal development opportunities for new and experienced art practitioners

If you are searching for new ways to enhance your knowledge, skills and creativity, then look no further.

The Open College of the Arts specialise in providing high-quality creative courses and degrees to help you maximise your creative potential.

Whether you have just started to explore the creative sector, are looking to expand your existing knowledge, or even looking for opportunities to further your established discipline, there are opportunities for everyone.

Our students come from all walks of life and success to them is different. With our flexible degrees, you are encouraged to explore avenues which you enjoy most.

Our flexible study time-frames mean that you can study for a degree at a place and pace that suits you, as part of a creative community of over 50,000. Take up to 2 years to complete our Open Foundations courses or 9 years to complete your degree. If you need more time, simply let us know.

Our MA Fine Art is slightly different, and is offered on a part time 3 year programme, delivered as a cohourt.

As part of the number one creative arts university in the UK, the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) allows us to offer a sea of learning resources, at a reduced cost. Your course materials are available 24/7 and even in the post.

Not only do we host study visit events all over the UK, we offer publishing opportunities for you to showcase your work professionally. We celebrate our students successes with heroic graduation ceremonies and shows throughout the year.

You’ll have unrivalled course support with a dedicated tutor and student services team to help you on your journey.
