Event details

In this taster day you’ll get the opportunity to experience what it’s like to study Design and Digital Arts at University.

Join us at our City campus where you will start the day in a lecture theatre where academics who teach on the courses will give an overview of the range of subjects we offer, from Fine Art, Photography and Graphic Design to Filmmaking, VFX and Games, with many more in between, in order to help you identify which one might be for you. This session will also breakdown some of the words and phrases that are often used in universities and bust some myths!

You will then be lead on a tour by our current students where you can find out what life is like studying Design and Digital Arts at the award winning Modern University of the Year.

This tour will take you around our two main buildings where you can see our excellent facilities and spend some time having a look at our current students work which will be displayed for you.

We will also walk past the brand new building which is being fitted out with an LED Virtual Set combining real sets with 3D environments, a Green Screen VFX studio, fitted with the latest OptiTrack Technology (motion capture), and a black box studio whose controlled environmental conditions will support immersive Projection mapping and Virtual Reality.

Next up, it's one of our theatre studios, which will be set up for you to experience the creative potential of our new technology, as you play games, experiment with VR and take a virtual walk around the new building, with technicians on hand to demonstrate and answer your questions as you immerse yourself in this exciting environment.

Finally we will finish the day with a question and answer session with our academics and students and you’ll have the chance to learn about the varied career paths, industry connections and opportunities the different degrees offer.

This experience can also help your Personal Statement stand out!

The day is free of charge and refreshments will be provided. It's perfect if you haven't decided if university is right for you, or you would like to know more about the different degrees we offer as you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get a sense of what feels right for you.

You must be 16 or over to sign up to this event and be studying any of the feeder courses (e.g Art, Graphics, Theatre, Design, Creative Media, Games) that lead into the Design and Digital art department.
