      What you'll learn on the course

      Design and Creative
      Web Application Design

      Course programme

      First year

      During the first year, students concentrate on building their core skillset, which includes graphic design, web design, video and sound editing, image manipulation, and basic photography skills. At the same time, aided by research literature and ideation sessions, they are introduced to concepts such as visual communication, ubiquitous design and user experience.

      Second year

      In the second year, students delve deeper into web-based content, and learn how to create mobile applications, interactive digital comics, video game prototypes and physical interfaces. The year culminates with a multi-disciplinary exhibition, where the Digital Media Design students lead a collaborative project, which includes students from other disciplines across the School of Creative Arts such as Music, Photography and Architecture or an external institution.

      Third year

      In the final year, students propose, manage and realise a substantial media project, alongside the production of a report in a subject of their choosing. Students examine and produce work for the multiple types of digital media platforms now available. Their studies will also prepare them for employment through professional development planning, sector analysis, portfolio development, networking and careers advice.

      Work Placement

      Placements are a valuable means of establishing industrial contacts and gaining an insight into the commercial reality of a chosen discipline. We have a long history of students working with industry to supplement the taught university curriculum with real life on the job experience.

      This has seen students working right across the creative industries sector: in graphic, product and interior design consultancies, working as artist in residence in galleries, producing props and sets for the film & TV industry, shadowing teachers in education, working with commercial photographers through to students working right across the Music industry.
