New College Durham launch new Web Design course


New College Durham is launching an exciting new higher education programme in September 2013 aimed at students interested in website design.

The full-time Foundation Degree in Web Design is a two year vocational course and is unique in its approach that it will combine technical coding with aesthetic design, appealing to both computing students and design students.

Designed and delivered by industry experienced staff, the web design programme is £7,200 and offers fantastic value for money compared to traditional universities.

Richard Hall, programme leader for Web Design, said: “The Foundation Degree in Web Design is a fusion of both technical and creative elements.  This innovative programme is being run jointly by the Computing and IT and the Art, Design and Media departments at the College as there is a unique crossover of both areas.  We are very excited to be offering this new programme, with the aim of producing employable graduates for the web design industry.”

The Hive, is a new specialist resource venue at New College Durham, and offers web design students the opportunity to work in a professional design studio environment, using industry standard software, and working on live commercial briefs with local businesses and entrepreneurs.

New College Durham became one of the first institutions to be granted Foundation Degree Awarding Powers (FDAP) by the Privy Council and it was the first College in the region to embark on the lengthy and intense scrutiny process by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education to award its own Foundation Degrees.  This means that the College can develop innovative new programmes, such as the Web Design qualification, and respond to local market conditions.
