Work relatedness is a core theme of Foundation Degrees and during the second year of the course you will work on a variety of commercial projects in our studio, honing your skills whilst working with real clients. Over the past few years we have created websites for numerous local and regional businesses, from the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats to the BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’ finalist Claire Young. We have excellent links with local web professionals, and work closely with them to ensure there’s a high degree of industrial relevance to the course.
