This course focuses predominantly on the practical side of the industry, embracing the latest technologies and techniques. We want to help you become an imaginative and technically astute designer who is comfortable working as part of a team. The three-year course is centred around our gadget-packed, industry-standard Digital Design Studio, which is Adobe certified and offers courses in Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and other software. Throughout the programme, students develop the ability to understand the imperatives of designing for the digital media industries in terms of the look, feel, narrative and aesthetic qualities of a digital media product. Over the duration of your course, you will be expected to develop independent and critical learning, progressively building confidence and expertise through independent and collaborative research, problem-solving and analysis with the support of staff. You take responsibility for your own learning and are encouraged to make use of the wide range of available learning resources available.
Graduates work as designers within industries such as internet and interactive media creators, game design, animation, advertising and photography. Students also start their own company as a creative technologist or entrepreneur with knowledge that they are able to brand, market and promote their company through web and social media. Students are encouraged to secure work placements at the end of their second year until the end of the first semester of their third year; the placements often lead to roles within their chosen companies after graduation.
