• Students with A-level (or other level 3 qualifications) in relevant subjects but with grades (or UCAS point totals) below those required for entry at level 4.
• Applicants with A-levels or equivalent UCAS points achieved more than five years ago where the currency of the applicant’s knowledge has not been maintained over the intervening time;
• Mature applicants who lack formal qualifications and/or skills or whose formal qualifications and/or skills are insufficient or inappropriate for entry at level 4;
• Applicants who have not engaged in post-compulsory education;
• Overseas applicants who have formal qualifications but who would benefit from greater underpinning knowledge and experience of UK higher education practice prior to study at level 4.

Year 1: Introduction to Make-up Artistry (40 credits)
This module aims to provide the opportunity for the students to explore experiment and then develop skills and knowledge within a range of make-up artistry disciplines; including character designing, drawing, illustration, photography, basic photographic manipulation, cosmetic function & form, cosmetic application & technique, basic specialist make-up effects, and hairstyling

Year 1: Personal Project (40 credits)
This module allows students to further develop an individual, specialised project within their chosen subject specialist area, (or combination of areas), thus preparing them for the more self-directed nature of study at degree level. It allows students to develop further creative thinking, project planning and management skills whilst articulating a clear subject specialist direction. It is anticipated that the combination of subject areas explored in an Introduction to Make-up Artistry will foster a lateral approach to personal project design, encouraging unusual and unique solutions.
