KLC will require those students who have been provisionally accepted on the diploma without a degree qualification to complete this online pre-diploma course prior to the start of their programme of study. However, many students who do already have a degree qualification also find this course very beneficial for refreshing academic study skills. This course will provide invaluable preparation for non-degree holding students for the highly intensive diploma courses.

The syllabus will cover the following and will be delivered through online lectures:

  • Research and recording information
  • Accessing creativity, mind mapping and lateral thinking
  • Critical thinking and analysis
  • Structuring an essay, recognising and reflecting on different points of view, developing an argument, communicating ideas effectively
  • MLA referencing
  • Time management and self-motivation
  • Making use of facilities (museums, galleries and libraries)

Should any section of the preparatory course work not meet the necessary standard, candidates would be required to re-submit.
