A Level ART
The creative industries are the fastest growing economic sector in the UK, responsible for 5.6% of jobs. It is for this reason, but also because of the unique skill set that is developed through study of the arts, that UK universities and employers are increasingly looking for pupils who have chosen to study a creative subject at A Level.
|Do I need to have studied the subject at GCSE?||
Ideally but not necessarily.
If you haven't studied at GCSE then we will want to see a portfolio of the art work you have been doing in your own time to show you have the skills and creative interest for this A Level.
|Are there specific entry requirements?||None for Photography. If you opt to study Fine Art or Textiles you are strongly advised to have studied GCSE Art to grade 7 or above.|
|What is the assessment format?||Combination of written and practical coursework|
Any particular subject combinations recommended
