PgDip (Initial Qualification)
|Level||RQF Level 7|
Applicants are required to have an Honours degree in a related subject, or a professional or academic qualification recognised as equivalent to an Honours degree. Applicants who do not have the required qualifications, but do have professional experience, may be eligible to gain credit for previous learning and experience through the Accreditation of Prior and Experiential Learning (APEL) i.e. professional experience or a combination of courses and work experience. Experience is assessed as a learning process and tutors will evaluate that experience for currency, validity, quality and sufficiency. Some prior knowledge of design software is helpful, but not a requirement for joining the course. Software skills are however not taught as part of the course, so if applicants are unfamiliar with design software, it might be useful to study a part-time software course concurrently or in advance of joining the course. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) overall, with 5.5 in each skill.
