    Course Structure

    The first and second years cover the principles and concepts of advertising and explore the opportunities presented by multimedia and the internet.

    The third year provides an opportunity to undertake a year long placement in a business environment and gain practical skills that will be an added advantage when you embark on your graduate career. This is highly valued by both students and employers and helps students achieve better results in their final year. It also provides valuable experience in an advertising or communications environment.

    The final year provides the flexibility for you to follow particular areas of interest including events management and marketing or advanced consumer behaviour. You can choose between a 20-credit marketing project or a 40-credit dissertation.
