What Can I Expect When Studying UNITAR’S Foundation in Arts?

Studying arts at a university does not end upon graduation; it’s a lifelong process for many. 


Increasing your perspective comes with experience, which involves both practical and theoretical studies. The basics serve as an introduction to the fundamental knowledge of business principles and humanities. What is a Foundation in Arts, exactly? The aim of the programme is for students to develop the necessary vocabulary and knowledge to be able to formulate explanations for concepts, principles, and theories.
