We get a number of students who have taken design and media courses at Polytechnic wanting to develop their skills further, while deepening them with a more academic approach; we also have Art A-Level students exploring design and media for the first time. Some of our students have not formally studied in this field at all, but are driven by their interests and enthusiasms to take the BFA. We are very open!
