Level three Diploma in Creative Media

is an exciting new course at BACA. The course goal is to provide you with an internationally recognized qualification, equivalent to two UK A-Levels in art and design.

After an introduction phase to explore these fields, you will concentrate your efforts on a chosen specification within creative media. 


The BACA Level three Diploma promotes a holistic approach to learning as we combine high level pre-university training with vocational excellence. We at BACA are proud to support our students in finding and following their individual creative path. We give advice and guidance at every step of the way, may it be in an individual or team setting, because we are highly skilled and experienced teachers as well as artists. 
The International Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media will teach technical skills through workshops and exercises. The course aims to support you in discovering and pursuing your personal interests and allows you to create new work along your chosen pathway. This will enable you to confidently select your university courses in the future, as you have gotten a first impression of the industry as well as possible career paths. After one year you will have developed a strong portfolio showcasing your work.
The course supports the progression to BA courses at UK Universities and as well as BACA Foundation (FAD). After one year you will have developed a strong portfolio for your university application. Throughout your time at BACA, the teaching staff also puts great importance on developing your English writing, listening and speaking skills to give you a solid base for your international studies in the future.
