Our Advertising programme offers an outstandingly strategic, pragmatic, and creative Bachelor’s degree, designed to produce the global advertising leaders of the future. We’ve developed exceptional links with leading international names such as BBH, Beattie McGuinness Bungay, CST The Gate, JWT, M&C Saatchi, McCann Erickson, Mother, Ogilvy & Mather, Gratterpalm and Brass.
Our many partner agencies offer coaching, mentoring, work critiques, live and competition briefs, workshops and work placement opportunities (in places like Brussels and New York). Students regularly win month long placements with big agencies; many are offered graduate employment with agencies they’ve had contact with.
Agencies love our uniquely theoretical approach: we get under the skin and into the psychology of advertising, producing smart, culturally aware and highly sought-after graduates.
Our tutors have considerable industrial experience spanning art direction, copywriting and branding, working with some of the world’s leading agencies. In addition they continue to excel in academic research and writing to inform both curriculum and context of practice. They will show you how to deconstruct and critique some of the world’s best advertising, using what you discover to problem-solve and to inform and develop your own work.
