Who we're looking for:

  • You must be 18 or over when the course starts in September 2023
  • You must have 120 UCAS tariff points from either an Extended BTEC or A-Level in art and design, or an L3 advanced apprenticeship in art or technical design. You may have a relevant degree, such as games development
