Digital Media is the largest and fastest-growing media industry in the UK, and the world. Professionals are multi-skilled and familiar with a range of established and emergent media platforms, using innovative workflows to drive creative work in new directions.
The Digital Media course provides students who are keen to work in cutting-edge media industries with opportunities to develop a vital and forward-looking set of skills and experiences. You will cover a range of subjects including interactive design, contemporary moving image, web technologies, graphics and animation right from your first year. You will also have opportunities to develop in progressive and emergent fields such as app development, digitized objects, and virtual reality, with tools including Insta360, GoPro VR, Oculus, HTC Vive, Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
Our ground-breaking curriculum is built on a platform of employability, and you will be working on projects and pitching to major international clients such as HyperX, Unilever and Historic England from your first semester onwards. This continues throughout the course via our in-house 'DMx' extra-curricular work concept, giving you opportunities for essential real-world skills and industry contacts. Graduates from the course work at many high-profile media organisations such as the BBC and Jungle Creations, while strong links with industry mean that you will be able to meet and learn from respected practitioners. Guests at the annual media school festival have included YouTube entrepreneurs Yogscast, graduate and founder of Entirety Labs Ross Silcocks, and Nataly Rios from Transmedia pioneers Conducttr.
You can also take part in field trips, such as the annual ‘Music & Media’ trip to a different European city for cross-platform content production, as well as events such as Transmediale in Berlin, Ars Electronica in Linz, and our annual free visit to the London Design Festival.
