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.

The people are what made me choose to come to Arts University Plymouth. I was in love with the community here. I met so many interesting people. If you’re trying to make a decision about what to do next, I’d say come to Palace Court. You get a very different experience from any other education system. Everyone here is very open. The experience has helped me grow in many ways. I’d recommend it to anyone who is a little bit stuck or doesn’t know what to do, because you kind of find yourself during the two years that you’re here.” – Maya Albagli, Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Practice: Art & Design graduate

It’s not just the community that will have you falling in love with Arts University Plymouth, our Palace Court campus is just around the corner from the beautiful Barbican waterfront, a stone's throw from entertainment and leisure centre The Barcode, and only five minutes walk from our main-site, Tavistock Place.
