Standard workshop induction costs are covered by the University, as are some initial printing and material costs. However, depending on the media/materials chosen by the student, there may be additional costs incurred.
The Creative Advertising programme aims to run trips to London advertising agencies once during the second year of study and once or twice during the third year. These trips are optional and will not impact upon student grades. Travel costs for these trips are the responsibility of the student. These can vary, however students are all given ample notice.
The programme also aims to run a trip to New York advertising agencies once during the second year of study. This is optional and does not have an impact on any grades on the course. The cost of the New York trip is approximately £850 (based on recent figures).
The School aims to subsidise third-year showcase work. However, students can expect to collectively raise additional funds between themselves towards a 'private view' entertainments budget, should they choose to do so. A figure of £200 is approximate and depends on the size of the year group and the number attending.
Other additional costs can include notebooks, A3 layout pads (approx. £5-£10 each), and marker/fineliner pens (approx. £1-£3 each).
