On completion of the programme, your portfolio will be marked and the score retained for when you make your application to LSAD.


Entry Requirement

There are no formal academic entry requirements. This programme is designed for Post-Junior Cert students who may be interested in pursuing a career in Art & Design at third level. This course is also suitable for those who have completed the leaving certificate, but did not study Art, as a Leaving Cert subject, and for mature applicants who may be interested in studying Art & Design at third level.



Continuous evaluation will take place during the programme with a final assessment on completion. Following the final evaluation, each participant will receive a portfolio score, which will be retained and may be used for applying to LSAD. It will therefore not be necessary for the participant to have their portfolio assessed, during the application process.
