Digital SLR Photography - Part One
Interested in photography? Or interested in capturing a new passion? Digital SLR Part One, is the place to start.
I have learnt so many valuable techniques and skills to broaden my creative repertoire during my time on this course. My visual language has been challenged and expanded by the wide range of subjects and projects covered across the board. I have learnt invaluable lessons throughout my time at UCN and I will carry these skills with me throughout my career in the Creative Industries.
HNC in Graphic Design
The practical work and the chance to use the computer software in a more in-depth programme was the reason I chose the study at Newbury College. I enjoy being able to be creative in my learning.
Creative Media Level 3
I chose Newbury College because it provided me with the right course in the specific area of IT I wanted to pursue. As an apprentice, the on-the-job training allowed me to fully immerse myself in the career I wanted and a work environment which taught me the skills I still use today. Since leaving the College I have worked for various companies around the South East including design agencies, print and digital marketing companies, start-ups and charities. I am delighted to currently be using my skills to support the local community at Apple Print Creative and Design as a Web Developer.
Apprenticeship in IT
In undertaking the HNC Graphic Design course I feel that I have been able to develop both my skills and knowledge to a level which would be required in the commercial environment. It has been a lot of work, but totally worth the end result. I have designed a logo which will be used by Newbury College which was a great opportunity for anyone starting out; I have a client who I am working with to create illustrations for a book; and I am starting to sell my own work commercially. UCN provides a great option to anyone who is interested in going to university but would like the option of staying at home, and paying lower fees.
HNC in Graphic Design
The HNC in Graphic Design course has given me an excellent understanding of the creative industry, the skills and techniques required including Adobe software ready to take forward with confidence into my career aspiration of becoming an Illustrator. All the lecturers have been very supportive whilst, pushing me to fulfil my full potential.
