The University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts is assessed through a series of projects that are designed to broaden student’s skills, experience and expertise. The projects are multi-disciplinary and require students to work collaboratively and pro-actively with fellow students as well as external clients and stakeholders. A final end-point assessment (commonly referred to as the Final Major Project) decides the student’s overall grade for the year which is graded at: PASS/MERIT or DISTINCTION. The first year (Diploma) is allocated the following UCAS points: PASS (36), MERIT (60), DISTINCTION (84). The second year (Extended Diploma) is allocated the following UCAS points: PASS (72), MERIT (120), DISTINCTION (168). Student work is externally assessed and scrutinised by External Verifiers from the University of the Arts London to ensure that academic standards are adhered maintained.
Successfully completion the Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts will provide direct entry onto the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts in their second year. The design and structure of the University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts allows students the opportunity to further extend their learning by choosing an alternative Performing Arts pathway in their second year. For example, provided that they meet the entry requirements, a Dance student could follow the Acting pathway in their first year and then choose to follow the Musical Theatre, Acting or Production Arts pathway in their second year.
