Entry Requirements & Interview Process

Applicants are expected to have achieved a minimum of Pass in the Foundation Degree Creative Arts, or an equivalent level 5 award (comprising 240 credits of which 120 must be at level 5), such as a foundation degree or Higher National Diploma in a closely related subject area. 

All applicants must complete a satisfactory interview as part of the admissions process. A good level of English and Maths is expected, however passes in Level 2 or GCSE qualifications are not absolute requirements. Applicants may, at the discretion of the course team, be required to bring a portfolio of work to the selection interview.

Applications for RPL (RPEL or RPCL) will be considered where relevant experience or learning can be demonstrated, and the University Centre process has been satisfactorily completed. 

Assessment Methods

You will be assessed throughout the course by completing projects, presentations, written reviews and evaluations and reflective self-evaluations. 

Before you hand-in or present a final piece of work there is usually an opportunity for a discussion with your tutor in a one-to-one tutorial. You will be encouraged to submit or present your work-in-progress to your tutor – which will not be graded – to see whether you are on the right lines. There is usually a limit to the amount of feedback that your tutor can give you – please ask them about this. 

Your assessed work will go through a process of internal moderation and then will be checked by an externally appointed person called an external examiner. At each stage this means that marking and grading is checked and may be adjusted.
