Preferably applicants will have studied a Photography, Media or Art-related subject at A2 level.
Candidates must meet the following criteria:
- A Minimum of 32 UCAS Points plus GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade C or above.
Although not a prescriptive list, candidates could also possess one of the following academic profiles:
Overall Pass Grade in BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma, National Diploma qualification ideally, but not essentially, in a Photography or Art-related subject
A Pass in a Foundation Diploma or Foundation Degree in Art and Design
- Provide evidence of ability to undertake the course through the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). APEL is a process by which you may be awarded credits for learning that you have gained in the past, and which is relevant to the course to which you have applied. It may also help you gain entry to a programme if you do not have the required entry qualifications. This may be certificated or experiential learning.
The interview process will involve an interview, a questionnaire and a summer assignment. The outcomes of which, along with the required grades, will determine your successful entry to this programme.
All suitable applicants will be invited to bring a portfolio of recent photographic printed images (20 -25 maximum) to the interview. In addition, workbooks and photo-books samples may be evidenced.
Applications are particularly welcome from those who may not fit the academic profile outlined above, for example those who may be employed in the photographic industry, but who have the relevant level of experience.
Please note: At this level of study potential students will need to possess self-motivation, demonstrated through portfolio presentation and their performance at interview.
If the course is oversubscribed additional criteria will be applied.
