General Information



The NWU Creativity Centre strives to provide excellent training in visual creativity to the public. The purpose of our website and online prospectus is to inform potential students of the various offerings that are presented. Here you will find brief information about the different offerings: what each entails, when and where the courses are presented, the relevant admission requirements along with the materials required. 



There are two kinds of certificates on offer. Our one-day workshop on Video & Film Editing does not entail any assessment and therefore, upon registering and attending this workshop, a certificate of attendance is issued.

All our short courses, however, involve both assessment tasks and final practical projects. In order to successfully pass any of these courses students will have to comply with the minimum requirements, i.e. a minimum of 50% is achieved for the relevant short course's assessment tasks and final practical projects and at least 70% of classes were attended.

It is important to note that, with regard to class attendance, exceptions are made for education students and their annual practical weeks. Exceptions for cases with special circumstances discussed prior to the commencement of a particular course can also be arranged.  Please also note that all offerings of the Creativity Centre are non-credit bearing and as such no university credits are allocated to students for completing any of these.
