We’ve developed this course for students who have not completed a traditional foundation course or who are not quite ready to go on to degree level, but who know which subject they wish to study. This course is the first stage of a bachelors degree – it is not a standalone course. Following the successful completion of the year you'll then progress on to the first year of the appropriate degree.

There are exciting opportunities to gain real experience and it’s highly likely you’ll find work shortly after graduating. WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE? An impressive 100% of our graduates were employed or in further study within six months*. This isn’t surprising to us because we build vital experience into this degree: there are regular projects for real clients, site visits, and an optional year in industry – some students have been to Los Angeles for this. It’s also accredited by the Chartered Society of Designers (CSD), so you’ll develop the knowledge and skills you need to become professionally qualified. *Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?
