More Information

Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, New Zealand’s leading private tertiary arts and design institute, is a NZQA qualified tertiary institute that recognises the central role creative arts play in today’s society. We offer stimulating pathways into arts and design careers for domestic and international students. Whitecliffe provides an innovative, challenging and rewarding environment with low student-to-lecturer ratios that enable lecturers to focus on the individual needs of students. Independence and risk-taking are strongly encouraged at every level through programmes that challenge while providing opportunities for students to test themselves - yet always with the support and stimulation of Whitecliffe’s close-knit creative community.

Lecturers are practising artists, designers, administrators, therapists, educators and researchers with immense expertise, networks and experience. They are skilled at tapping into your creativity to nurture and expand your knowledge and ability. Internships, fieldwork and student exhibitions all play an important part in the curriculum. Our vibrant student community is exposed to the contemporary arts and design world through exhibitions, international guests and industry professionals. As part of our encouragement of careers in the arts, Whitecliffe also provides comprehensive professional grounding in areas such as business, marketing and ethics

As an NZQA registered provider we offer a four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with majors in Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Fashion Design or Photography, as well as a range of business and contextual courses, and for those who require it, English language support. We also offer foundation studies and postgraduate programmes allowing Whitecliffe to be a destination for both new and experienced artists/designers wishing to progress in their chosen discipline.
