International students can apply directly via our Online Applicant Portal.
Students will be expected to have five GCSEs (grade C/level 4 or above) or equivalent (including English), and hold at least one of the below or equivalent UK/international qualifications.
Students should ideally have a background in art, creative media, or design. Applicants are expected to submit a portfolio of work which shows a range of their skills and demonstrates why they would be a good fit for the course.
We may also consider a combination of portfolio and academic qualifications and take into consideration progress made during studies and/or relevant work experience.
You will be continually assessed through presentation of written and project work. Assessment in the final year is through submission of a dissertation and portfolio of work.
This design-led introduction explores core competencies in graphic and information design and in design and coding for the web.
Students will begin to learn the fundamental skills of the UX and UI designer in the structuring of visual information and start to develop a fundamental digital skill-set. A programme of industry practitioners and speakers supplements and enhances the core delivery.
Year 2 explores more advanced interactivity through play and experimentation in coding. Encouraging a personal approach, the course enables and supports the application of both individual and group design propositions to real-world and imagined scenarios.
The culmination of three years of study is channelled into practical projects, which become increasingly professional in scope.
A range of self-directed projects along with a major project of the final body of work forms the third year of study. Final work is appropriate to applied contexts within the creative industries.

This course explores the importance of designing for the end-user experience with intuitive user interfaces.
Students will explore an understanding of what constitutes UX and UI design, as well as what makes an effective UX and UI design on websites and mobile applications.
They will learn about the four most important aspects of UX and UI design: usability, interaction design, visual design and information architecture, and how these components can be professionally identified, investigated, informed and interrogated.
Students will develop and create an individual portfolio of inspiring and resolved projects based on user-centred research and design experimentation. This will showcase both their creative and analytical skills and technical expertise.
UX/UI Designers are in huge demand from industry across all sectors helping to define and create the future products, services and experiences people want and enjoy.
Graduates will find work in a number of roles such as UX Designer, UX Researcher, UI Designer, Interaction Designer, Service Designer, Visual Designer, and Creative Technologist.
