The course is designed to enable you to acquire new and emerging digital media skills. You will be based in a collaborative digital media studio; a place to share and formulate emerging ideas and application of traditional and future technologies. Highly motivated staff, with a passion to support innovative learning, will encourage risk taking and experimentation at all stages of the creative process, and support the application of skills to new and emerging markets and contexts. We regret that this course is not available to international (non-EU) applicants who would require a Tier 4 Student Visa
Year 1: Building the foundations of your professional development through experimentation, problem solving skills, methods, techniques and applied solutions are at the heart of the first year.

Lectures and seminars build up an understanding of the cultural, critical and industrial context of your practice. Year 2: We encourage you to focus on your areas of interest as well as studying the more advanced problem-solving and technical skills development. We acknowledge the convergence of many aspects of Digital Design and Arts contemporary and future practice. Hybridity is integral to the production of innovative new forms of creative digital output.
