Extended Diploma in Creative Practice

Students often say they’ve ‘found their place’, that ‘Palace Court feels like home’, we couldn’t agree more!

The Extended Diploma community at our Palace Court campus is bursting at the seams with a diverse range of artists, designers and makers, all working, studying and socialising together - we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

There are two key steps you need to complete ahead of joining your course here at Arts University Plymouth. The first step is to activate your online account, and then the second step is to enrol online. Please follow the instructions below.

First Step:

To activate your online account, you need to set up your username and password. Your login details are as follows:

  1. Open an incognito window or private window in your browser and then go to webmail.aup.ac.uk.
  2. Enter your username - First initial of your first name, first initial of your surname and your student reference number (see above).
  3. Enter your password - First initial of your first name, first initial of your surname, a full stop and your date of birth. (If you are a returning student with us, use your existing password.)
