BA (Hons) Undergraduate Degree Programmes
Our three-year BA Honours degrees demand an energetic and inquisitive approach to critically underpinned practice, which is central to all the programmes. As well as producing practical creative outcomes to a range of projects and live assignments you will also be expected to contextualise your ideas culminating in the writing of a dissertation which is often very influential on the development of practical work and vice versa.
We offer places to students who have a GCSE profile of at least five GCSEs, grades A* - C or minimum Grade 4, including English Language. Applicants also need a portfolio and a minimum of 96 UCAS points earned through: an Art & Design Foundation Diploma, A-levels, BTEC Extended Diploma MMM grade, Access to HE Art & Design, Irish/Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers, the International Baccalaureate, or other international qualifications.
We welcome applications from candidates without formal qualifications who can provide evidence of their creativity. We also welcome applications directly into the second and third years of our BA (Hons) programmes from students from other degree courses nationally, and from those from Foundation Degrees and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) who want to complete their full BA (Hons). The tariff points shown online are valid for the current application cycle only, and for entry in September 2019, or for deferred entry in September 2020.
