What are the additional entry requirements for this course?
All learners should be 19+ on entry to the course. You'll need to show commitment to study and research at this level, combined with a strong interest in the subject area. GCSE requirements for Access applicants: In order to progress to certain Higher Education courses, you may require GCSE English and/or GCSE Maths to fulfil your university entry requirements.
Ideally you will already have GCSE Maths and English at grade A*-C. However we understand that not all students meet this requirement and so you will be considered for an Access course if you have one GCSE at grade A*-C in Maths or English and the other at grade D. A GCSE or functional skills course will be offered as an additional option for the Access course - please note that some GCSE classes may be delivered in the evening. If you don't have any GCSEs or equivalent qualifications then we will be able to recommend you for another course based on the results of your initial assessment at interview.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"No one day is ever the same! We are currently doing an advertising campaign and we have to work on every aspect of it, from the script to producing the music. I am surprised at how much equipment the College had to help us film and edit the advert.
The best thing for me as well is that we have the opportunity to sample other courses like music production, even though that isn’t what we are studying. I can’t wait to see our finished product!"
