At the beginning of the first term you will be guided in choosing your specialism disciplines most suited to you (3D Design, Fashion, Visual Communication). With support and advice from your lecturers you will also consider which universities you wish to apply to.
In the second term you will apply the skills gained in your first term to a number of projects and live briefs from within specialism disciplines of Fashion, 3D Design or Graphics & Illustration. You will also explore a variety of themes relevant to environmental, social and political issues as you develop your portfolio and prepare for university interviews.
In the third term you will consolidate your practice through a self-directed project. At the end of term, you will showcase your work through an exhibition or show and celebrate your achievements at our graduation ceremony.
