Course summary

Creating digital design-based solutions can be inventive, elegant, and rewarding. Taking a problem from a client or business then designing and producing a solution is not only professionally satisfying but in high demand in all areas of business, locally, nationally and across the world. Our FdSc Digital Design, offered in collaboration with Yorkshire & Humber Institute of Technology, will prepare you for working in a Digital Design studio, with the technical, professional, and interpersonal skills required to be successful in this field. Digital Design studios exist in most sectors or individuals are employed or work freelance across most industries, from manufacturing, education, marketing, publishing, to entertainment including TV, film, and games. As a graduate from this course you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to enter a studio with expertise in static graphics and illustrations, interactive and immersive design, and with a portfolio of practical work which will evidence your skills and talents for future employment. This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support.
