Pursue a Creative Career
Te Hono ki Toi (Poutiri-ā-rangi)/ Bachelor of Professional Creative Practice (Honours) programme is collaboratively offered by EIT’s two iconic creative practice schools: ideaschool and Toihoukura. It offers a unique perspective from both the European and Māori creative culture allowing a wide selection of media to be advanced.
The Bachelor of Professional Creative Practice (Honours)/Te Hono ki Toi (Poutiri-ā-rangi) [Level 8] provides the opportunity for students to gain a postgraduate qualification, create an effective and professional body of creative work, make it publically available and speak professionally about that work based on in depth and broad research.
Delivery of the programme is “blended” – That is, it is a combination of on-line study, wananga and research by creative practice. Students may be “based” at either Toihoukura or ideaschool but will have opportunities to engage with staff and students based at both schools, as well as students who may be practicing throughout Aotearoa and indeed the world.
The 120 credit programme is a full year of study at level 8, consisting of three compulsory courses that will build on students’ knowledge, skills, and attributes gained in their undergraduate degrees in visual arts and design.
EIT offers a variety of scholarships across various subjects and programme levels. Some scholarships are based on your age, some are specific to the subject you want to study.
