Course summary

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree. During your Foundation Year you will get the opportunity to talk to tutors about your degree study and future career aspirations, and receive guidance on the most appropriate Undergraduate course to help you achieve this; providing you meet the entry requirements and pass the Foundation Year.

Successful advertising design depends on an understanding of marketing principles, so the integration of graphic design practice with marketing and advertising theory is at the heart of this course. We place great emphasis on the development of the valuable transferable skills you will need when you join a creative advertising team, skills that will help you solve design problems and communicate your ideas while using your understanding of markets and branding. From a practical point of view, you will develop expertise in a number of technical and creative areas, including drawing, lens-based media, software applications for 2D graphics, 3D modelling and motion graphics, and these will help to open up a world of opportunities in the advertising and creative industries.

Employability skills are integrated into the course and provide you with an awareness of the real-world context of the creative industries in general and Advertising and Branding Design in particular. You will be helped to develop a strategy for obtaining appropriate employment at the end of your course. Professional practice will be emphasised as part of all learning units but a work-related learning unit especially will help you to become more focused on managing your career. You will be helped with the preparation of a professional portfolio; including a CV (curriculum vitae) and social media skills needed to promote yourself in a social mediated art and design world.
