About

The course's links with industry practitioners means you'll learn about current practices, creating websites for live clients such as Cheltenham Motor Sports.

You also have the option to complete a year-long work placement. Students have worked at Rancon, Montpellier Creative, Athena Web Design and IBM. You'll analyse how applications can work within a real-world context by taking exciting field trips. Students visited the Design Museum in London to see how technology could influence perceptions of the artefacts, the VR World Congress conference to get hands on experience of cutting edge virtual reality solutions and Tamworth Snow Dome to produce applications assisting skiers.

Think you've got what it takes to piece together an innovative web solution from scraps of code, in 48 hours? You'll get the chance to enter the webathon challenge for rewarding prizes.
