LIPA Sixth Form College offers University of the Arts London Level 3 Extended Diplomas

We offer career-based qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to higher education or go straight into employment in the creative or performing arts.

The University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 3 Extended Diploma is worth up to 168 UCAS points - the same as A*A*A* at A-Level.

When combined with academic learning through our Study Programme (which includes functional Maths and English if no GCSE resits are required), our UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas develop a range of practical knowledge and skills which help learners to prepare for – and progress in – their chosen career.

UAL is a specialist, highly regarded institution with a world-class profile, ranked sixth in the world for Art and Design (2018 QS World University rankings). Information on the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma can be found on its website:
