Target audience 

This innovative and unique course offers a holistic approach to develop your academic and vocational skills to help you succeed in the creative industries. You focus on creativity, specialist skills, new media and technology, and learn to respond to the challenges of a dynamic and rapidly changing range of professions in the creative industry.

The flexible nature of the curriculum content allows you to develop your own individual pathway or specialism within the broad subject areas of spatial design, product design, graphic design and interactive media.

Entry requirements 

Typical offer 80-96 tariff points, including a portfolio of work. Consideration will also be given to students with evidence of practical art and design experience at an appropriate level.

Course content 

Level 4 modules develop generic skills in design and provide opportunities for you to work in a chosen specialist discipline including spatial design, product design, graphic design and interactive media.

At Level 5 it is anticipated that you develop your own learning plans in negotiation with your tutors.

Assessment criteria 

You are actively involved in the assessment process for project-based modules. Interim critiques and regular tutorials provide you with formative feedback on your progression during tasks. Projects culminate with a group critique in which you take part in a presentation simulating the client pitch scenario. This provides opportunities for you to share best working practice and develop your understanding of assessment requirements. Informal oral feedback is provided at this time followed shortly afterwards by formal written feedback giving clear indication of achievement against module criteria.

Progression 

You work in a specialist design discipline towards a professional career in spatial design, product design, graphic design, and interactive media.

Opportunities exist for future employment links with a strong vocational element to the course aiding and developing career progression. Academic rigour is promoted and encouraged along with a suitable curriculum, to allow progression to Level 6 qualifications.
