    Description

    This programme is designed for those who wish to pursue a career in the creative digital industries and provides a strong grounding in digital media production with an emphasis on creativity and innovation. You will develop skills in visual design, storytelling, video production, animation, creative thinking, interface design and product development alongside an understanding of computing, digital technologies and programming.

    On achieving a set of base skills you will be encouraged to develop your understanding of digital media through the production of a series of practical projects that require you to adopt increasingly creative solutions and take on greater management of the process. You will also be able to develop a specialist skill in either 3D animation or digital television providing you with an entry point to a growth area of production.

    The final year project provides the opportunity to develop your skills in a specific area of digital media, creating a deep knowledge of a specialist area and seeing a product through from initiation to completion. Throughout the degree there will be opportunities for you to develop independent thinking, self-management, research & analytical skills, teamwork, and the ability to communicate confidently in a variety of forms appropriate to your chosen industry.

    The aims of the programme are:

    • To produce graduates that can understand and follow emerging technologies and creative practices in a broad range of digital media
    • To make you aware of the technical, social, ethical and legal issues in product development and deployment.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
