About the course
This course is for those who already have a degree, preferably in the area of arts or sciences, and who wish to study art history intensively over one academic year (full time) or two (part time). It is designed for those who have an active interest in the history of art but do not already have a degree in the discipline. It is suitable for those who are currently employed in some branch of the arts and want to obtain an academic qualification in the area or for students who require a conversion course to apply for graduate study, such as the taught MA or the MRes/MPhil/PhD research degrees at UCC (note that completion of the HDip does not guarantee a place on a graduate course). This is a full-time course over one academic year during which you will take courses in the history of art to the equivalent of 60 credits (for the two-year part-time option, you will take courses to the equivalent of 30 credits in each year).

Student numbers, at over 21,000 in 2016, increased from the late 1980s, precipitating the expansion of the campus by the acquisition of adjacent buildings and lands As of 2017, the university is rolling out a programme to increase the space across its campuses, with part of this development involving the creation of a student hub to support academic strategy, to add 600 new student accommodation spaces, and to develop an outdoor sports facility. In 2018, UCCs campus became home to the first "plastic free" café in Ireland, with the opening of the Bio Green Café in the Biosciences building.
