Entry requirements

As of September 2017, the entry requirement for Level 2 Creative Media are 3 GCSEs at grade 9 - 3 (A* - D) or above or a Level 1 Pass.
Typical Work:

The awarding body, University of Arts London, strongly urges a constant sense of self-guidance and independent work throughout the course. Students will need to generate creative ideas, experiment further with them and ultimately create a portfolio of work demonstrating all the necessary skills. This will include a variety of research and practical skills centred on the industries of Film & TV, Games Development and Music Production.

A large part of the qualification is focused on the student being able to communicate their ideas and show self-reflection and evaluation as well as a critical understanding of the practices they are developing. They will write, record and present their ideas to build their confidence and showcase ideas.

In addition to the entry qualifications listed, the offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process.
