Entry requirements

You need to have five GCSEs at Grade A* - C or a Level 2 Diploma in Graphic Design with Photography at mainly Merit level.

You will also need to have a successful interview, to which you will need to bring a photography or art portfolio.

English and maths qualifications are vitally important for future employers and universities, so the government has made it a priority for students to improve these skills.

Entry Level / Level 1 and Level 2: We’re here to help you on your journey, so if you do not achieve grade A*-C in GCSE English and/or maths, then you will study English and/or maths as part of your college course.

Students who achieve a D grade will be placed on the relevant GCSE programme, while students who achieve an E or below will be assessed to ensure they are placed on the right study programme for their ability.

Level 3 programmes: You will need to meet the course entry requirements specified on the course information above. For the majority of our Level 3 courses, students will need grade A*-C in GCSE English and/or maths. If this is not specified in the course entry requirement, then you may be able to study English and/or maths as part of your college course.


You will be continually assessed throughout the course.

Future opportunities

On successful completion of the Level 3 course you can progress on to a Higher Education course at HND or degree level at university or find employment in the media, design or photography industry.
