Certificates of Achievement

Certification of Achievement programs are non-degree, flexible and streamlined to allow you to move through your learning pathway in less time.

AUArts' Continuing Education Certificates of Achievement are available in Graphic DesignIllustration, Jewellery, and Visual Art.* 

*Certificates of Achievement are available in their current format through December 2020 for students who are currently working toward this Certificate. Please rest assured we remain committed to supporting students who want to complete these certificates. However, we cannot accept any new Self-Declaration Forms for any Certificates of Achievement as of June 2019.

For students in the process of completing their Certificate of Achievement you can view your planning guide here.

For further inquiries or if you are unsure of your current progress, please contact the Continuing Education office.

As of January 2021 our Certificates of Achievement will transition to Certifications of Achievement. 

New Certification of Achievement Program Listings

Certification courses are the same calibre and rigour as our previous certificate programs, taught by professionals working in their respective fields, each with unique experiences and knowledge in their practice. Beginning in Fall 2019, you may begin pursuing a certification.

You can view the Certification of Achievement planning guides here.
