Whether you are a graphic designer, photographer, animator, digital filmmaker, illustrator, web designer or motion graphics designer, this course will develop your work through innovation, exploration and self-directed study.

This course is designed for ambitious practitioners who are looking to hone their future directions, post graduation, or who are already working in the creative and media industries.

The programme provides an opportunity to work with experienced academics with proven track records in creative practice and the media industries, using state-of-the-art facilities.

It enables you to test and progress your work and ideas informed by cutting-edge, international contexts of digital design and creative practice and by the challenging ethical and theoretical debates surrounding these.

In addition to professional practice, you will also engage with experimental investigation and ethical issues. Modules are designed to encourage innovative practice within individual disciplines and collaboratively across disciplines. In the Independent Study module, you pursue an in-depth exploration of the critical, theoretical, creative and practical aspects within a specialist field. In addition, there is the opportunity to acquire knowledge of entrepreneurial and business skills.

The course will enable you to effectively manage the balance of creativity and technical knowledge, and will develop your production techniques and strategies. Effective research, analysis, interpretation and evaluation of digital media will also be developed.

The course is supported by a central bank of excellent digital media facilities, such as Macintosh computers running industry standard digital media software, and smaller studio spaces for digital media experimentation, research, production and development work. There is a 48 track digital sound recording studio, a digital video production studio with full lighting rig, blue screen technology and multi-camera studio facilities, as well as digital video editing facilities and web servers.

Learning, teaching and assessment within the programme has been designed to develop specialist knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to your professional practice in digital media, as well as to enable you to develop academic and transferable skills that will support your creative practice. Your knowledge, skills and approaches will be developed through a variety of learning strategies, including lectures, written assignments, group work, seminars, practical work, and tutorial support.

Reflective practice is a key element of the learning and teaching strategy and facilitates the integration of both theory and practice.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
