Work experience is embedded in the second year with a live external client brief. Students will begin to develop a specialist area of study through creative practice-based projects, and develop your technical skills in a series of craft workshops, all supported by academic research. There will be the opportunity to meet guest lecturers from the creative industries and arts which will bring the commercial and artistic practice to life. In the third year create students own unique portfolio of work; show off their creative vision and talent.
