We normally require an undergraduate 2.1. However, we also consider candidates with relevant experience and aim to interview all applicants. Where possible we invite prospective students to experience a day of teaching to see if it suits their expectations.
Months of entry
This master's pathway is for applicants who wish to develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of reflective thinking and Visual Communication practice. Experiences and knowledge drawn from across the pathways will be reflected in your personal core study. Using theory to underpin your practical work will bring a broader level of visual understanding to your practice, which in turn will guide your theory-based research.
