This programme will prepare you for creative roles in the expanding digital industry. By undertaking studio-based projects, you will realise your design ambitions using industry standard design and prototyping software. Throughout the programme, you will acquire the necessary technology skills and user-centered design thinking to create digital solutions for a variety of media including websites, motion graphics and mobile applications.

Assessment methods

The majority of assessment for this programme is coursework based. Assignments set are practice based design briefs or projects (individual and group based), where students respond to problems set and develop design solutions. These often require written reports/narrative to support the justification of the design decision and to document research that informs design solutions.

Most coursework assignments involve undertaking a significant element of independent study and implementing associated practical tasks within a given deadline. Several modules require digital folios of design solutions as evidence for assessment.

Individual and group based presentations are used to assess initial project plans and/or project outcomes using verbal communication with supporting visuals. Unseen Written Examination will be used in some modules.

Written coursework in the form of group and individual reports will be used as methods of assessment in Integrated Project and other modules where appropriate. This prepares students for Honours level study especially the Honours Project where a large proportion of the assessment is in written form.
