Course Structure

Our higher education level 4 HNC Ceramics course offers an exciting opportunity for students to gain and develop practical skills and digital design skills. The first year of our two year diploma will enable you to improve personal creative practice and expand your knowledge of the wide range of ceramic techniques. Under the supervision of experienced Program Manager and Ceramicist Anna Silverton, along with an enthusiastic team of inspiring tutors who are all industry specialists, students will develop ideas and skills within the context of ‘real-world’ design-focused assignments. At Morley our dedicated specialist ceramics, mould-making and design studios include the latest equipment to enable students to explore emerging technologies and gain hands on knowledge of ceramic materials and techniques. We also invite visiting designer-makers and guest lecturers to expose students to a range of creative techniques and career possibilities, gaining real-life knowledge and understanding. Students have opportunities to exhibit work throughout the year as well as the end of year exhibition, which celebrates student achievements.

At the end of the year students will have achieved a Pearson Level 4 Higher National Certificate in 3D Design; the Ceramics Pathway, and will have a wide-ranging portfolio from which to begin a creative career path. We would highly recommend a progression on to the level 5 HND Ceramics course at Morley College.

Our small group sizes ensure maximum learning for each student and maximum contact time with tutors. In order to ensure you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular and detailed feedback from your tutor in a constructive and supportive environment as well as specialist technician support and group critiques.

Entry Requirements

We welcome applications from anyone who feels that they are capable of reaching the standards required by the qualification. We offer places on the basis of a portfolio and previous experience; all students are expected to have a good standard of computer literacy. Applicants will then be invited into the college to discuss their work and experience in more detail.

We appreciate that mature students may have extensive experience, including experience gained through paid or unpaid work or through other types of professional training or sector related opportunities. If you have recently been in education it is likely that one of the following will provide a suitable entry profile: a relevant level 3 qualification, a GCE profile that indicates strong performance in a relevant subject, an Access to Higher Education Certificate.
