The Higher Certificate (HC) Courses serve a dual function. First and foremost it is a one-year foundation course designed to offer students access into the first year of undergraduate degree studies at AFDA. In addition, it is an exit level higher certificate equipping students with skills allowing them to be placed in the entertainment (film/ tv/ radio/ events/ theatre etc.) industry in assistant-type positions to key crew.
Contact your nearest campus about visiting the campus for a consultation, attending an Open Day or for more information about the Higher Certificate Programmes.
