CUT Extended Programmes



CUT Extended Programmes, The Extended Programme in Art and Design is offered by the Department of Design and Studio Art. This programme is designed to prepare students for studies in art and design programmes, thus widening access to higher education.



The programme has access to specialist art and design laboratories, and the lecturers have been carefully selected to ensure that they are not only experts in their chosen subjects, but also excellent and enthusiastic teachers.



This course has been designed for applicants who were denied direct access to the main programmes in Fine Art, Graphic Design, Fashion and Clothing. This programme will impart the necessary experience and skills to students for the subsequent year of study in the different art and design courses.  Students will be given the opportunity to build up an impressive portfolio in a variety of mediums and techniques.

Students who pass the first year of this course will proceed to their second year in a different field of study, namely Fine Art, Graphic Design, Fashion or Clothing.  The duration of the course is four years and successful students will receive a national diploma in their specific field at the end of the fourth year.

The programme covers the following theoretical subjects: Academic Literacy & Life Skills, Basic Computer Literacy, and Introduction to Principles & Theory of Art & Design.  The practical subjects are Drawing for Design, Two-dimensional Studies (which includes Communication Design, Painting, Illustration & Printmaking and Basic Sewing) and Three-dimensional Studies (which includes Design Techniques, Ceramics & Sculpture and Pattern Drafting).  The subjects are structured in such a way that students will be prepared for a wide variety of art and design and related fields.  The ECP are also involved in Sustainable Development projects and Community Engagement. In 2012 community engagement projects were completed at the children’s cancer ward in the Universitas Hospital in Bloemfontein as well as at the Fichardpark Highschool. A font sculpture using the word,’ INNOVATION’ (a core CUT institutional value) was built from recyclable materials for the sustainable development project.

Applicants must be in possession of a Grade 12 or equivalent qualification on NQF Level 4.  Art or Design is not a prerequisite.  Applicants will be interviewed and must present their Grade 12 results (or mid-year marks), a copy of their ID and a programme-specific portfolio which they can obtain from the mainstream’s programme heads.
