Lighting Design and Technology (Including Foundation Year)

Our foundation course in Lighting Design and Technology allows you to build up the knowledge and confidence to progress on to the BSc (Hons) Lighting Design and Technology degree, and to the lighting and live event industry. Accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this lighting design course will give you the skills to bring light into spaces and performances, using a combination of art and science. You’ll study lighting design and its technical application in a wide range of disciplines, including theatrical, concert, TV, corporate and architecture. As well as technological skills, you’ll gain an insight into business practices to prepare you for freelance work or consultancy as a lighting designer. As part of your course in lighting design, you’ll get plenty of practical experience – The Cube is a dedicated space on campus where you can practice and realise your creative ideas and designs. Our staff are authorised WYSIWYG (lighting and venue pre-visualisation software) trainers. Media servers and console programming form an extensive part of this lighting course. You can also become qualified to the IET’s 17th Edition Wiring Regulations (additional costs apply), which means that what you learn meets industry requirements.
