This will give you real work experience of the industry and - along with sessions on study skills like reflective thinking, self-management and problem solving – will help prepare you for a future successful career. As with nearly all of our creative qualifications, this Diploma is awarded by University of the Arts London Awarding Body - the only specialist creative arts awarding body in the UK
4 x GCSE grade 3 or higher including English or Maths and/or prior achievement at Level 1.
How will I be assessed
