<p>Although many of our students do come in with top grades and high UCAS points, these aren’t necessarily essential for entry. We typically ask for a minimum of <strong>112 UCAS points</strong>, but we understand that talented artists, designers and makers can have a wide range of relevant strengths and skills beyond formal qualifications. We’re just as interested in exploring your portfolio and discussing your creative experiences as we are in seeing your grades.</p> <p>We recognise the value of a variety of qualifications and relevant experience and welcome applications from students who have followed less traditional routes. We also accept a range of international qualifications and will look at each application individually.</p> <p>For more information please consult our <a href="">How to Apply page</a> and the UCAS <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Tariff Table</a>.</p>
