The course is delivered by experienced tutors who are currently working as creative directors and agency practitioners. Industry placements and agency visits will add to your development.

We encourage you to explore visual communication and theoretical issues raised by the relationship between advertising, brands, marketing and issues of sustainability. You’ll learn to integrate strategy, planning and creative practice. And you’ll develop your industry links, networks and placement opportunities.
