Entry requirements

For admission to the programme we would normally expect that you hold a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area such as social sciences, humanities or education. While we normally only accept applicants who meet this criteria, if you have a high 2:2 or equivalent, are coming from a different academic background which is equivalent to degree level, or have relevant work experience, we would welcome your application.

Applicants are expected to have some previous experience of the creative arts in education (visual arts, dance, drama, music or other). This might include simply having attended arts classes yourself or having volunteered to assist in arts education settings, or you may be experienced in some form of arts-based teaching or facilitation. We are looking for students who are actively interested in creative arts education; we aim to start with your own experience and to develop this through the course.

We welcome applications from students who hold qualifications and degrees that are not in education. These may include degrees and qualifications undertaken in the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, arts or business studies. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and every application will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We would encourage applicants to use their personal statement to indicate their interests in creative arts education and any relevant work experience.

Some modules require Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
