2. Who this course is for

On this programme, you will have the opportunity to explore and develop specific traditional craft-based design skills and will be encouraged to apply this learning to newly acquired skills within a broad range of new and emerging technologies and media. In the creative and digital sector and further afield, new ideas are at a premium. They are the life blood of great design, which is why we place experimentation and investigation at the heart of the curriculum and why you will be challenged to push the boundaries of design and investigate the unproven and untried. With your broad skills, industry connections and growing self-confidence, you will graduate from this programme as an English specialist, able to progress to post-graduate study and meaningful employment, where you will make a significant impact in academic, creative or other professional sectors.

3. Entry requirements

A minimum of 96 UCAS points in an appropriate discipline excluding Functional Skills and GCSE English Language at grade C or above (or equivalent). Applicants who are able to demonstrate relevant work/life skills or knowledge will also be considered on an individual basis. All applicants will be given the opportunity to attend a workshop. Alternatively, if you are unable to attend, we will view your work online. For further details, please see <a href="https://www.blackpool.ac.uk/sca/auditions">www.blackpool.ac.uk/sca/auditions</a>.

6. What you'll need to bring

Essential additional costs for this programme are minimal and we make a considerable effort to provide in-class resources and a good library stock. However, when you are embarking on creative projects and exhibition work, for instance, the purchase of some art supplies will be required to realise your creative outcomes, but these costs are minimal and infrequent. In terms of other potential costs, you may wish to purchase books and/or other resources, but this is not essential as we try to ensure that an adequate quantity of core and secondary texts are available to borrow.

7. How you'll be assessed

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
