Subject

Creative arts and design

This is an outstandingly strategic and creative course that nurtures individuality through collaboration. It is designed to produce ‘Ideas That Work’ from a new wave of creative leaders in advertising.

We’ve developed exceptional links with leading international agencies such as BBH, Beattie McGuinness Bungay, The Gate, JWT, M&C Saatchi, McCann Erickson, Mother, Ogilvy & Mather, CreativeRace, Uniform, TBWA, and Brass, which will maximise your exposure to industry practice.

Creativity sits at the core of our proposition and feeds a common desire for originality and innovative thinking. Our ‘Actively Creative’ philosophy requires you to take on first hand intellectual and creative challenges which are developed both in-house and through our industry contacts.

The course has a strong academic, theoretical background, which will underpin your creative practice. Our tutors have considerable industry experience spanning art direction, copywriting and branding, and they continue to excel in practice-based research and writing. You will learn how to deconstruct and critique some of the world’s best advertising, using what you discover to inform and develop your own work.

You’ll have the opportunity to enter prestigious international competitions like D&AD New Blood Awards, Young Ones Competition and AdVenture. Top agencies have offered coaching, mentoring, work critiques, live briefs, workshops, competition briefs and work experience possibilities. Our students regularly win work experience opportunities with big agencies.

The BA (Hons) Creative Advertising degree has been awarded the ScreenSkills Tick, the industry quality mark, following a rigorous assessment process by experts working in the Creative Industries. The ScreenSkills Tick is awarded to practice-based courses which best prepare students for a career in the industry. www.screenskills.com/education-training/tick

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Only a small number of students study courses sitting under this broad subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. Teaching, advertising and the creative arts were the most common industries for these graduates, but it's a good idea to attend open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from a specific course and what previous graduates typically go on to do.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later.
