  • We will encourage you to develop a unique visual signature and a compelling visual voice that will help you to effectively communicate with intended audiences; both essential for success in professional practice.
  • You will have the option to apply for a ‘professional experience’ opportunity2, designed to further develop your skills and knowledge with the aim of maximising your employability prospects. See modules for more information.
