The content of the course mirrors the Sunderland-based equivalent course Advertising and Design. Our courses delivered at study centres share the same ethos, material and approach as those delivered at Sunderland itself. The course has core practice-based modules that include developing advertising campaigns, computer skills, creative portfolios, branding and identity.

This is a hands-on course and you will be encouraged to work in pairs as this is how the industry recruits. Forging relationships during the course is great preparation for the workplace and helps to maximise creativity. The course is industry-recognised and industry-focused.

Please contact your Study Centre for more information on the delivery of this course.
