Fees & Funding

Once the College has finalised its proposals for 2020/21 Tuition Fees more information will be published. Any proposals will be in line with Consumer Price Index, our Fee Policy and Government guidelines and requirements. Please note Foundation Degrees are qualifications in their own right and students progressing from a Foundation Degree to a top-up year are subject to a new fee.

Overview

You will learn and develop a wide range of skills including type and letterforms, design principles, digital illustration, 3D graphics, motion graphics and digital/graphic manipulation.

Being taught through a combination of lectures and in-class practical activities will help you to embed learning and appeal to a variety of learning styles. Your learning will be supported by Moodle – an on-line electronic resource platform managed by your module tutors, by the excellent LRC at the Aireville Campus in addition to the College’s Specialist Support Centre.

Your time in College will be spent in informative lectures, workshops and tutorials, however, there will be an expectation that you will spend the double amount of time, developing, ideas, techniques and processes outside formal College time on significant independent study.

The HNC is a nationally recognised qualification in its own right and is the first year of an HND course. Year 2 of the course (HND) is designed for students to specialise in a chosen field, working independently on self-directed projects. Students may continue on to the HND providing there a sufficient number of students wishing to do so.
