Our Advertising and Brand Design course has developed and maintains a healthy working relationship with local creative businesses where our students regularly take up internships and work experience.

In the past, our students have enjoyed internships and work experience with agencies such as Urban Foundry, Golley Slater, S3 Advertising, Dirty Little Serifs, Sugar Creative and B2Bxi.

Staff also have a wider network of connections with advertising agencies, design practitioners, academics, illustrators and musicians.

Every year our third-year students exhibit in Swansea. In the past exhibitions have taken place in Unit Nineteen, the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea’s Liberty Stadium and even the local Boss brewery! Final year students also have the opportunity to exhibit at the D&AD New Blood Festival in the Shoreditch, or New Designers both in London.

Other year groups have the opportunity to set up bespoke exhibitions around particular projects which in the past have centred around water safety campaigns and fashion branding.
