Entry requirements

We are looking for highly motivated and creative students. We will primarily be interested in your portfolio. If your predicted grades fall below these requirements but you can demonstrate a high-quality portfolio, you are still encouraged to apply. We will consider you on an individual basis.

A foundation diploma is not a requirement for entry – it is just one of a range of qualifications that is accepted for admission to this course.

A-levels or BTEC
Entry requirements are in the range of A-level AAB–BBB (136–120 UCAS Tariff points), or BTEC Extended Diploma DDD–DDM. Our conditional offers typically fall within this range.

We will generally make you an offer if your predicted grades are at the top of this range. If your predicted grades are towards the lower end of this range we may still make you an offer if you have a strong portfolio.
