Course content

Build your capabilities as a strategically minded art director or copywriter. You’ll learn in an environment replicating a full-service advertising agency, where you’ll develop the creativity and key skills to forge a successful advertising career.

Working in copywriter and art director creative teams, you’ll create advertising from your very first week, taking on projects based on real agency briefs. On top of developing an understanding of conception and strategy, you’ll also learn the vital skills essential to any advertising role - like IT training, negotiation and presenting ideas. You’ll graduate equipped with a professional portfolio and the contacts you need to win the job you want.
