"Going to networking events such as Creative Shift and Shades of Noir has helped me prepare for my future career."

UAL is currently developing a selection of courses within the UAL Creative Computing Institute, based at Camberwell College of Arts.

“My first experience of UAL was when I did a short course during my A levels. I saw how UAL encourages free-thinking and I decided to apply for the Foundation course, before going on to pick my undergraduate course in 3D design. I did all of these at Camberwell College of Arts – it has such a warm community.

Starting my Diploma at CCI has encouraged me to think within the blurred lines of technical and creative outlooks to produce something really innovative. I recently created an audio-reactive piece of code that reacts to the bass, mid and treble frequencies in the environment. It was really interesting because I don’t have any previous experience with coding, yet I was able to produce this through multiple experiments – something that’s constantly encouraged here.

We always start the day with group meditation and then have a chance to ask questions – we can ask anything we like! Then we’re encouraged to work independently but with the help of our classmates to debug or fuel our own work so we can all progress with our projects.

Going to networking events such as Creative Shift and Shades of Noir has helped me prepare for my future career. The way the course is structured also means we get industry talks and constant updates on work opportunities – anything that might inspire us.

One thing I’ve found is that there’s support everywhere: in the studio through your peers and tutors, and help with paid work opportunities and experiences you can’t find elsewhere. So keep an open mind: don’t be set on one particular idea or method of working. Make use of all the workshops, even if you’re not sure you’ll need them.”
