Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

Standard offer Applicants will require 80 UCAS points in a media related subject, or 60 Access-to-HE Credits (of which a minimum of 45 must be at Level 3). Applicants are required to hold English and Maths GCSE (or equivalent) at Grade C/4. A portfolio/body of work will be required to evidence an informed interest in and appreciation of the subject area. Non-standard offer Non-standard entry is intended to support students who may not meet the standard academic entry requirements of a HE programme, normally level 3 qualifications which attract UCAS points (for instance A-levels or BTEC level 3 courses). An applicant must be able to demonstrate recent work/experience in the relevant sector which would give them skills and knowledge comparable to applicants with Level 3 qualifications. All such non-standard applicants will be assessed through an interview assessing their overall interest in the subject matter as well as current academic skills, set an appropriate piece of work (an essay and practical task), a judgement is then made considering their academic potential and relevant experience and skills. For example, a person may not have a background in media, but have excellent problem solving and teamwork abilities and have a desire to change careers through training. In line with a strengths-based approach to widening participation, students without direct experience will be offered extra support from the Success Coaches, as well as the Academic Support Coach, and will also benefit from regular tutorials with the Programme Leader so that they feel they are fully supported during their educational journey. Accreditation of prior learning TEC Partnership encourages student transfers from other institutions. Applicants may be admitted with credit for prior certificated learning (APcL) or work/life experience or other uncertificated learning (APeL).
