Program Overview

This course celebrates digital creativity. We teach you broad computing and design skills, from smartphone app building to VR game development and beyond. You will learn your craft from the ground up, through a mix of workshops, tech demos, creative problem solving challenges, and collaborative briefs. We believe that in this field you will learn best by making, so you can look forward to creating digital work from day one.

Course Assessment

Creative Computing is almost entirely coursework-assessed. You will deliver a varied and balanced collection of artefacts including prototype software, experiment portfolios, digital interfaces, interactive stories and web apps. Project work is supported by contextual essays, reflective commentaries, sketchbooks, reports, pitches, presentations, debates and b/vlogs.

Teaching Method

You will be taught through creative workshops, technical labs, seminars and project drop-ins. These sessions are supported by individual and team tutorials throughout your degree programme. CodeLab modules are delivered in small groups. This provides the tutor contact time you need to learn computer programming effectively. A network of visiting speakers and mentors keep you in touch with developments in the tech/creative sectors, while a team of technical demonstrators reinforce the ‘skills training’ aspects of your learning.
