Whilst there are no academic requirements for this course, putting together the portfolio and meeting all the criteria to pass the course means that you must be able to write coherently, express your thoughts and emotions in a way that others can understand, be willing to explore your personality, history and patterns of relationships and be willing to look at diversity and difference.
It may not be ideal to take this course while you are experiencing emotional difficulties as the course material may raise issues that you could find difficult to cope with in the class setting. You will need to spend time outside the sessions at college working on your portfolio, so do please make sure that you have enough time available to complete the course satisfactorily.
