Access to Higher Education Diploma - Media Studies

The Access to Higher Education Diploma - Media Studies is designed for adults (19+) who have been out of full time education for some time and are aiming to join university or higher education courses.  The course is modular and therefore flexible enough to fit around your work and/or family commitments.  Day time study is spread over two days and is approximately 12.5 hours of study per week. 

 

Course Content

The media route of the Access course will be a mixture of academic and practical options. Students will work on still photography and video production, producing a range of artefacts, including documentary and single camera drama. In addition, this work will be fully contextualised by relevant media and cultural theory.

Entry Requirements

Applicants are required to have a GCSE C/4 or level 2 equivalent in English before undertaking an Access Diploma. It is also strongly advisable to have GCSE Mathematics at grade C/4. If you do not a Mathematics qualification, we aim to give you the opportunity to study either a GCSE or Functional Skill at Kingston College alongside the Access course.

In addition, applicants need a satisfactory reference, successful interview and screening. Applicants must have sufficient time to devote to their studies.

Please note that it is the responsibility of the student to ensure their current and future qualifications comply with the entry requirements of any university to which they intend to progress.

International Entry Requirements

Successful completion of High School education (to grade 12), 5.5 IELTS (or equivalent) with a minimum of 5.0 in the reading and writing sections of the test and a reference from school or a recent employer.

Duration and Delivery

One year, part time, two days a week.

Progression

Students can progress directly on to our own Foundation Degree in Media Skills or progress on to a wide range of courses in moving image, journalism, advertising, film and PR.
