Our exciting and Creative Advertising course at Swansea College of Art UWTSD embraces the amazing opportunities offered by new technologies and innovations. We support our students' evolution by inspiring contemporary, creative thinking to solve the communication problems of the future. Our students have, for example, won four international D&AD New Blood awards in the past five years. We mentor our students to be ideas-driven, media-neutral, team players with a 360 degree strategic view. By studying with us you will become highly skilled in creating relevant ideas that reach the hearts and minds of audiences. You will explore ideas through a multitude of creative techniques from photography to film, graphic design to copywriting, AI to AR, disruption to experiential, blogs to vlogs and social media to name just a few. Our students benefit from smaller class sizes than many universities. This allows for considerably more contact time and creates a dynamic environment where you can confidently develop your creative skills while being fully supported by your lecturers.

Additional fee information

Our students have access to a diverse range of equipment and resources which, in most cases, are sufficient to complete their programme of study. We provide the basic materials necessary for students to develop their practical work within our extensive workshop and studio facilities. However, it is likely that art and design students will incur some additional costs to extend their investigation of their personal practice. For example, purchasing their own specialised materials and equipment, joining in optional study trips, and printing. Students are expected to bring their own personal art and design equipment with them when they commence the course. We can advise on the correct equipment needed for your programme of studies and signpost appropriate suppliers if you wish to purchase essential items before or during your studies. A basic ‘art and design kit’ will cost approximately £100 but you may well already have much of the equipment required, so check with us first. Also, although we have extensive dedicated digital design studios (PC and MAC) for you to undertake your coursework, you may wish to bring your own digital devices and we advise that you check with us first before making a purchase. Depending on distance and duration, optional study visits can vary in cost from approximately £10 to visit local galleries and exhibitions to £200+ for overseas visits – these costs cover things such as transport, entry to venues and accommodation and are normally at reduced rates for our students.
