It’s a powerful mix where you’ll be working with professionals to learn key skills in a fast-paced creative industry. You’ll find yourself in placement activities making campaigns for top advertising agencies like AMVBBDO, or delivering development solutions to famous entertainment brands like the BBC, or using the latest technologies to produce exciting events, interactive experiences and games for global clients like SONY. BA Digital Marketing is developed with our industry partners who are looking for “agency ready talent” and our students who are “100 per cent satisfied” with the course content and teaching (NSS 2016). You’ll be based in the professional environment of your own digital media team and you will engage in workshops, lectures and live client-facing assignments with your peers, tutors and industry mentors. We’ll give you your own MacBook Air to use for the duration of the programme, state-of-the-art resources to work in and top industry mentors to work with. As you progress through the course you will build a knowledgeable skillset that gives you proficiency and know-how across disciplines and specialist expertise within them. Along the way, you’ll build a tangible ‘portfolio of practice’ that showcases your work and proves your professionalism; you’ll be making and delivering real media assets for real clients in the real world. You’ll be looking for ways to reimagine trends, build brands, find fame, add value, optimise content, disrupt behaviors and monetise ideas across a range of media, platforms and channels. To do this you’ll need to understand how it all works, and your BA Digital Marketing course has the answers in a unique combination of options and projects.
