NEW full-time Level 5 HND Ceramics

Applications are now open for the NEW Level 5 HND Ceramics at Belfast Met.

This new programme is the only dedicated full-time Level 5 Ceramics programme in Northern Ireland.

The new HND Ceramics course at Belfast Metropolitan College runs for two years full time (3 days per week).

The course will enable learners to develop innovative design methodologies, whilst developing strong technical and conceptual skills underpinned by ‘thinking through making’.
Our specialist ceramics, mould-making, 3D design, and printmaking studios are equipped with industry standard equipment to enable learners to utilise traditional and non-traditional technologies, alongside expanding their knowledge of ceramic materials, techniques, and processes.

In the first year of the programme (Level 4) you will be taught hand-built clay construction, wheel-throwing, plaster mould-making, surface design and glazing alongside industry standard digital design software for surface design development and 3D printing/rapid prototyping. You will also develop individual design methodologies through real life design scenarios in the form of client briefs.

The programme will provide a professional context by engaging with industry in the form of trips and lectures and workshops by local and international visiting artists and designers. Successful completion of the first HNC year (Level 4) will prepare you to progress on to our second (Level 5) year.

The second year of the programme will give you the tools to become innovative and skilled ceramic designers and makers. You will continue to build and extend ceramic design and technical skills and deepen individual conceptual practice and discourse.
