Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

Art Foundation course We welcome Art Foundation course students. However, the qualification is not a requirement for entry and doesn’t usually count towards entry requirements, which are based on A-levels and equivalent qualifications. In exceptional cases, if you have not studied Art and Design at A level, we may consider an Art Foundation course in combination with grades ABB at A level. Extended Project Qualification: If you’re taking the EPQ, we may make you an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. In this case that would be BBB, plus EPQ grade A.
