What are the entry requirements?
Our typical UCAS tariff entry is 120 points (BBB at A level) or equivalent. However, we’re really looking for people with a passion for their subject so if you do not have the UCAS tariff points you need, or traditional entry qualifications, you can still apply through our assessment-based entry route. You’ll be invited to a Professional Workshop to see if we’re the right fit for you.
What are the fees?
Full time undergraduate fees are £9,250. All students that attend and pass a Creative/Professional Workshop will be awarded a partial tuition fee waiver, up to the maximum fee loan available for the programme.
