• Practical-based ‘digital media’ where you will explore digital media outcomes such as graphics, web page design and document design.
At this stage you will apply advanced skills towards an overarching project run over the year that blends any one of the skill specialisations developed over the recent years i.e. game development, 3D animation, software programming, database programming, and app development.
