Course description

If you would like to study for a degree but do not have the qualifications required to enter directly into Level 1 of a three year degree programme, or you are undecided which programme of study you wish to join, then the Extended Humanities programme offers you an alternative route into Higher Education. This extra year of study, a Level 0, prepares you for degree level study and has been carefully designed to support and motivate you as well as build your self-confidence. The programme is aimed at: Applicants with the motivation, determination and potential to succeed in their studies; Mature applicants who lack formal qualifications; Those who have experienced interruptions in their education particularly in the last year of A2 study, for example through illness; Those who do not wish to return to FE to retake A-levels or undertake an Access course; Those who may have studied in a vocational context and require fuller academic development before progressing to an academic course. The programme will help you to adjust to an academic culture and understand what is expected of students who are studying for a degree

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
A few years ago graduates from this subject were having a very hard time but things have improved a lot thanks to our active media, film and photographic industries - much the most common employers for this group. The most common jobs are in the arts — as photographers, audio-visual technicians, operators and designers, as directors, as artists and as graphic designers. Training in presenting sound and graphics is useful in other industries as well, so you can find graduates in journalism, in advertising, in business management, in events management and in web design and IT. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once.
