What your course will look like


You will be assessed through a mixture of project work, group work, individual creative activities, essays, engagement with the web, and placements with local industries.

Year 1

You will gain a fundamental knowledge of the industry, social media culture, web design as well as the production and presentation of content online. You will begin to think about your own approach to web services and build confidence and self-discipline in responding to live and self-initiated briefs. We encourage you to start thinking about your contextual studies research.

Year 2

You will gain greater understanding of how to build dynamic websites, design user-focussed experiences, as well as creating online games and stories. We set briefs that encourage you to collaborate with other students and create e-commerce services as part of a production team.

Year 3

You will further develop your skills in advanced web technologies and digital advertising, bringing your learning together in a major web project, ready for exhibition at the degree show. We ask you to show your contextual studies research and thinking in a long-form dissertation.


Successful completion of this course can lead to postgraduate study in MA/MSc Broadcast Futures, MA/MSc Interactive Digital Media, and MA/MSc Interactive Product Futures.
