Get hands-on experience
Arts students have many opportunities to put theory into practice. Students can complete an internship, Social Work students spend 80% of their final year on placement, Fine Arts students take part in gallery exhibitions and art installations, and Music students have the opportunity to perform at UC and community events.
Many Arts courses involve field trips both locally and nationally. This could be visiting parliament and meeting the prime minister, seeing local community groups, staying overnight at aUC field station, or visiting a gallery. There are many opportunities for Arts students to get out of the lecture theatre.
