Close to important museums and galleries, this dynamic course is taught by a team of dedicated tutors with relevant industry experience at a dedicated specialist creative centre. You will be encouraged and supported to discover your unique creative voice through experimentation, play and the discovery of new contexts for your creative potential.

Through industry relevant briefs you will develop skills in Media production and development using industry relevant software (Adobe) and exploring hands-on processes such as traditional photography using our darkrooms and stop motion animation.

The programme of study is predominantly experimental allowing you to deepen into your areas of interests s through in depth and broad investigations into visual language and creative practices.

Small class sizes ensure that you are supported and encouraged to develop your visual language and create a standout portfolio of work that reflects your interests in your chosen pathway.
