You’ll take part in challenging live projects, competitions and extra-curricular industry placements, so that by the time you graduate you’ll have a wealth of knowledge and experience to take forward into your career. The course will enable you to specialise in your area of interest while building a strong entrepreneurial skill set, and you’ll be encouraged to collaborate, socialise and share ideas within our unique community of creative students.
