This foundation degree has been designed to provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable you to play a significant role in the rapidly expanding creative and digital industries. Combining traditional design practice with a strong digital skill set, you will work on a range of engaging and innovative projects that will allow you to develop your creative and artistic design skills.
During your studies you will consider a variety of production practices, including 3D design, rapid prototyping and interactive design. You will work in both the physical and digital realms, combining these techniques to create designs in areas such as wearable technology and the Internet of Things, (IoT).
You will engage in a number of external live brief projects, working with a range of employers within the region, allowing you to put the skills you develop as a part of your foundation degree into practice.
You will have access to the latest industry-standard equipment and software, and the skills you develop will be directly transferable to employment opportunities within the hi-tech and creative digital sectors.

I progressed from Level 3 Adventure Sports at South Devon College through to the Adventure Leadership foundation degree at University Centre South Devon. I had a very large interest in the outdoors before starting college, and when seeing the course that was available, I felt like it was a great opportunity to study something I enjoy and I’m passionate about, whilst still learning. The high practical content of the course was also a big deciding factor. There were also many trips, expeditions and adventurous activities to take part in as part of the course. I have made many friends and the employment opportunities that I have been able to access has allowed me to put all of my training into practice.Olivia Harrison
