Across both years all students will be taught storytelling as an integral part of the visual creative process. They will also explore the cultural and historical significance of film and television. LSA students will learn to improve their communication skils, work constructively within a team, gain basic business knowledge and develop self-management skills.
In the first year LSA’s curriculum will provide students with a broad knowledge of the many skills and disciplines within the screen industries.
In the second year students may choose to specialise in a specific area.
LSA’s core course is the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production and Technology and is equivalent to three A-Levels. Eight pods of learning will be taught through projects across the two-year syllabus.
In addition to the core course all students will study for a qualification in English and maths from GCSE to A-Level. These courses will develop critical, reflective, problem solving and independent learning skills.
Students will be taught by outstanding teachers and the best screen industry professionals. Together they will plan, teach and rigorously assess students’ coursework. The progression routes throughout the two-year course will be clear to all students.
