What Communication & Multimedia Design offers

Wherever your interest in multimedia lies, whether it’s app development, games, graphic design or virtual reality, the Communication & Multimedia Design (CMD) programme sets you up to become a designer and multimedia specialist. With projects set by industry, you can expect a very hands-on approach that enables you to build your own portfolio of work while you study. As you develop your design skills, you also discover the learning skills you need to make design concepts and tools your own. With guidance from your personal coach, you’ll explore which skills you can best apply to learn different things. This is closely entwined with attitude and you’ll work closely with your coach, lecturers and fellow students on your drive for the industry. Each designer has their own voice and we want to help you find yours so that you can understand how you can have a positive impact on the world.

Communication & Multimedia Design in practice   

You work on assignments from real companies in each year of the course, collaborating in small groups and drawing on the skills and experience of lecturers and professionals in the field. You could be working on an interactive advertising campaign for a major brand, developing a virtual reality experience for people with mental health issues, creating an app with stylish design for a music festival, or designing a campaign to stop cyber bullying. This method of working (Design-Based Education) means you learn to draw on feedback to adapt your ideas and become more flexible, while also developing your teamwork and leadership skills. It means you get hands-on experience of what it’s like to research and understand a client’s business, their target group and the many disciplines of design.
