A typical offer would normally be made up of appropriate level 3 qualifications, such as full A levels or BTEC L3 Diploma. This could be translated as 2 x D at A level, or a Merit profile in a relevant BTEC National Diploma, together with 5 of GCSE grades at C or above including English (Maths isn’t required). However, factors such as previous experience and performance at interview can support the application.
We welcome applications from mature candidates who may not have met the academic criteria, but can demonstrate experience in their chosen field of art practice. Candidates in this category and otherwise are will be interviewed to assess their suitability for the course and asked to provide a portfolio of evidence to support their application. In the absence of formal learning qualifications applications are welcomed from persons who can demonstrate relevant work experience, including work in a voluntary capacity. The course structure actively supports claims for Accreditation of Prior Certified Learning (APCL) and Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).
International qualifications will be assessed against these criteria. Speakers of other languages will need to possess an IELTS band score of 6.0 (with no-less than 5.5 in any one element) or a recognised English Level 2 qualification.
All students are to present a portfolio and supporting academic text. This is undertaken during an interview or correspondence for distance applicants.
Students on the course will be expected to experience work related learning as part of the programme of study. Notional hours of approximately 30 hours will be logged through a WRL blog
