Overview

The Film and Digital Art programme at the University for the Creative Arts will encourage you to push the limits of technology, experiment creatively and develop innovative ideas for projects that will equip you for a future in the creative industries, fine art practice or postgraduate study. 

Whether you want to become a filmmaker, an artist or choose a career with a range of digital skills, as are now widely desired by employers, our Film & Digital Art degree gives you the freedom to experiment and develop those creative, critical and transferable skills that will give you the ability to stand out and even revolutionise digital content as we know it.  

We encourage curiosity, risk taking, critical reflection and conceptual exploration as you build your digital skills and production knowledge.  

Opportunities

With our extensive professional facilities and studios at your disposal, you’ll explore a variety of concepts and skills in the still and moving image by undertaking exciting practical projects and tasks.  

Technical workshops will help you build a professional production skillset and, as you move through the course, you’ll broaden your understanding and application of these skills by engaging with a range of interdisciplinary processes and ideas.  

As Film & Digital Art is part of our School of Fine Art and Photography, the course will encourage you to develop your contextual and theoretical knowledge of not only moving image, but also photography, media and contemporary art – all while reflecting on your own artistic practice. 

Our graduates stand apart because of their broad skill base and ability to think beyond the boundaries of film. They leave us with exceptional technical ability and artistic vision so they can go on to make ground-breaking achievements in the creative industries.
