Overview

This course’s unique philosophy revolves around the idea of the voice – training and finding the voice in Year One, developing and widening that voice in Year Two, and expressing and promoting each voice’s unique attributes in Year Three.
You’ll develop skills through individual and collaborative work in both studio and industry environments, including a work placement and live project briefs.
Over the three years, you’ll build a portfolio of work of various styles and techniques, across a range of markets and communication platforms. The course culminates in a graduate portfolio demonstrating each individual’s skills and interests.
