Whether you have recently graduated with a good degree in an advertising-related subject or you are a communications professional looking to further your career, this challenging degree provides the knowledge and tools necessary to become an advertising specialist.

The course features an advertising ‘boot camp’ where you will get the chance to be embedded in a live agency environment (either in Bournemouth or elsewhere in the UK) or work as part of an agency team in-house on campus. This brings together all your learning and experience into an intensive work experience that prepares you for your future career in the industry.
