What will I learn?


The award is designed to place students at the heart of their own learning, enabling them to take the step beyond foundation degree study in becoming autonomous thinkers, learners and creative practitioners and taking ownership of their own practice. It is envisaged that students will produce a high quality focused portfolio of work by the end of year.

This course will enable creative media and visual communication practitioners to become critically reflective by developing skills of enquiry, analysis and synthesis, questioning and confronting the internal and external forces that provide the context for their work. To enable students to take a critical perspective on both current practice and likely future developments within creative media and visual communication the course aims to develop highly employable practitioners with a creative vision and key attributes that include, responsiveness, flexibility and resilience.

Building upon their foundation degree experience, the award will offer a range of individual and collaborative experiences, enabling students to develop further their technical and craft skills towards industry readiness through intellectually challenging, industry facing creative assignments initially.
