Study Creative Arts abroad

Students talking

We work closely with national and international partner colleges offering a range of higher education courses and opportunities for progression onto some of our degrees.

If you choose to study at one of our partner colleges you will be a University of Hertfordshire student and get a University qualification while studying at a location that's convenient for you.

There are also opportunities for you to take part in study exchanges with our partners in Malaysia and Moscow.

Interactive Design Institute (IDI)

The Interactive Design Institute (IDI) offers you the education you need to be a successful practitioner in the exciting and rapidly developing field of art and design.

IDI offers a range of University of Hertfordshire degree level courses online, enabling you to study from anywhere in the world, at times that suit you. You will have access to your own personal tutor and high quality interactive distance learning materials.

Bjørg-Elise Tuppen, a talented graphic designer studying at IDI, received an award and prize of £10,000kr (around £1,000) from her local art society in Norway. She was also listed amongst the top Nordic photographers too.
