Course summary

If you're like most people, you'll experience web design many times every day. We use websites, social media, and apps for entertainment and for organising our every day life. Web designers play an important part in our lives and in the business world, constantly creating new ways for us to access the web, and experience different types of content. This course aims to give you the skills and knowledge to take your first step in this innovative industry. Web and digital design is a growing industry, and there is a big demand for skilled graduates who know how to design, produce and evaluate a wide range of digital products. We’ll give you the opportunity to gain the skills employers are looking for by looking at both the creative and technical aspects of web and content design. In the first two years we’ll look at the technical side of web development, while also encouraging you to gain an in-depth understanding of web, visual design and the expanding area of user experience (UX). We’ll look at moving imagery too, specifically animations, videos and motion graphics. The devices that people use to access the internet are changing all the time, so you’ll study how to design and create content and experiences for a range of screens, that users enjoy interacting with. Smartphones, tablets, watches and traditional computers will all be covered in the course. You’ll also have the chance to explore technical subjects, such as, * Web development * Artistic video effects * Graphic design (UI and UX) * Coding We’ll get you working on projects in teams to create complex products. It’s all about helping you develop your technical, design and project management skills. You’ll gain invaluable experience – in fact, some projects may mean you end up working on a real product for an industry client. To gain even more experience, you have the chance to take a placement with an employer after your second year. This is your opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice, broaden your range of skills and gain great contacts too. If you’re a student from within the UK or the EU and you have an idea for your own business, or you want to explore your entrepreneurial talents, you could even set up your own small company through our Enterprise Placement Year scheme. Your Final Year gives you the chance to use the skills you’ve gained to create innovative digital projects. You’ll then have the opportunity to show this and other work to the public and to the industry, at our Showcase event at the end of the year. Additional Costs:On this course optional field trips may be offered to destinations in the UK, which you would need to pay for if you choose to attend. Previous trips in recent years have included a visit to The National Museum of Computing for 1 day at a cost of £20.00 per student. Other field trips may cost more.
