What should I keep in mind?

Just as when you apply to any other type of course, there are a few things to bear in mind when you decide to apply to a creative pathway.

As well as attempting to take complimentary GCSE subjects and further education courses, it is also a good idea to think about what you can do outside of the classroom.

It is also wise to really think about where and what you would like to study. Each institution is different and each course will be different.

Where to study?

It is important to think about what you would like to get out of your time in higher education as this will directly affect where and what you will want to study. It is best to have a good look at the courses and institutions before applying so you can get a feel for both the learning and living side
