This pathway within the Art and Design course is aimed at people, who enjoy solving creative problems, while looking at traditional ideas from new and contemporary perspectives.
You will learn how to successfully use a range of Hi-Tech software and hardware, whilst developing your understanding of the design process, necessary research and conceptual skills, which are fundamental to entering these commercial areas.
The course also develops your independence, as you complete projects from conception through to realisation, preparing you for the Applied General Extended Diploma in Design year 2.
The College is an accredited centre of excellence working in partnership with the University of the Arts London (UAL); Europe’s largest specialist art and design awarding body, giving you the best possible platform from which to progress and succeed. The emphasis of an art and design qualification at the College is on developing creative thinking and innovative approaches to problem solving.
"Having progressed from a Level 3 course in Games and Interactive Media at South Devon College, I knew that there were excellent facilities and levels of support. The fact that UCSD is local also meant I would save money by staying at home, which was really beneficial. The support of the tutors has helped me transition into university-level study, which has been very positive. I contributed to an employment and research scholarship, where we secured an Oculus Rift display, which I'll be using to simulate and test some of the 3D spaces I've created. When I complete my studies at UCSD I will go on to complete a top-up year, before entering employment. At the moment I'm planning on working as either a graphic designer or in 3D modelling using the skills I've learnt during my studies."Jack Gladman
