This qualification is suitable for those who have an interest in art, design, media or a related subject and wish to explore and extend this interest via a full-time, immersive learning experience. You will develop and test your creativity within a structure that will provide a sound base of skills and knowledge, while enhancing self-confidence and revealing the potential career demands and opportunities within the sector.
