  • Success story

‘I transferred into my degree after two years studying a diploma in digital media. As a result, I felt like I had an advantage in the practical sense. The Industry-Based Learning program really attracted me to the course and I’ve been able to gain further industry experience through my placement. I have now found full-time work at a Digital Consultancy.’DanieleDiploma of Digital Media TechnologiesBachelor of Arts
