You will be taught by professional practitioners with strong links to the advertising industry through agencies such as Havas, Karmarama, WPP’s, The Store and many others. We also host guest lectures by writing and advertising professionals, including from agencies such as Work-Club, Saatchi and Saatchi, AKQA and more.
You’ll also be able to visit London agencies such as Fallon, JWT, Beattie McGuinness Bungey and wearesocial for portfolio surgeries and critiques of campaign ideas.
You’ll work on practical projects, focus on advertising campaigns, creative thinking and problem-solving, and be encouraged to work with our Solent Creatives agency and Solent Press to develop your links with employers. This will enhance your employability skills through one-off assignments and live creative briefs. We work closely with creative organisations such as D&AD, Young Creative Network (YCN) and the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM), and participate in the New Blood exhibition held in London every year.
For example, one of Europe’s top agencies, Havas, sent a team in to brief our students on a campaign to launch the Peugeot 208 last year.
