About

The Digital Media Design (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh offers the best of studio-based design learning in an online context. 

Overview

You will work together, and with colleagues located on campus in Edinburgh, to realise imaginative design outcomes and acquire wide skills in digital visual and audio techniques.

You will investigate practice contexts for application across the arts, entertainment, performance and industry. You will also probe the social, cultural and commercial implications of such developments.

The Digital Media Design (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh addresses the needs of practitioners, managers, decision-makers and educators who want to be informed by first-hand knowledge of the technical possibilities of digital technology and an awareness of social, cultural and business contexts.

Career opportunities

The prospects for employment are diverse. Recent graduates from the closely allied on-campus programme in Design & Digital Media are now working in multimedia and web design for architectural and urban design practices, advertising, computer system design and management, and tertiary level teaching. The programme is also ideal if you are considering continuing on to advanced research at a doctoral level.

Programme Structure

  • Projects bring out original thinking and independent achievement within a framework of independent study, virtual team-working and creative ability. 
  • You will also engage closely online with colleagues following our highly successful programmes in Design & Digital Media and Sound Design.
