Our BA (Hons) Digital Art (with Integrated International Foundation Year) is a four year course, specifically designed to provide international students with the English language and creative skills before they embark on year one of a degree. This degree is at the forefront of innovative visual practice, leading the way in thinking through the creative and conceptual possibilities of working with moving image and hybrid creative digital practices. Based at UCA Farnham, this course sits alongside Fine Art and Photography and as it is influenced by a range of global contemporary perspectives, will appeal to home and international learners alike. On this course, you will have the opportunity of building a broad range of moving image and digital skills while being encouraged to push the limits of technology to develop innovative ideas fit for the industry. There are thematic core units that include critically informed research-led lectures, a range of practical workshops and introductory critical and creative tasks. Throughout, you’ll be encouraged to collaborate, socialise and share ideas within your learning community and develop your own independent creative practice. Because this course sits within an interdisciplinary programme of courses you’ll also benefit from across-course collaborations and learning opportunities that offer you an enhanced learning journey. You will have the opportunity of undertaking elective units in photography and/or specialist Fine Art practices alongside or your core Digital Arts units. There’s also a strong focus on employability that runs across the curriculum, and we’ll support you to identify potential career trajectories and prepare you for your working life. Related courses
