Art & Design

Our art & design courses offer you a taste of art-related disciplines so you can decide which area you’d like to specialise in.

Creative Media

The creative media industry covers a wide range of sectors including advertising, design, animation, film, literature, music, arts, publishing, radio, TV and more! By 2024, there’ll be 25% more graphic designers in the workplace!

Interactive Media

We interact with media every day via apps on our smartphones, touch screen technology etc. Create digital products that depend on customer interaction in the form of pop-ups, text, video and sound.


With the advancements in technology, photography is a highly creative and dynamic area of work. You can specialise in studio, documentary, sport, food, architecture, marketing and fashion – and much more!


Are you on trend, have a good eye for colour and know what looks good? Turn your designs into real clothes; work with pattern cutters, retailers and buyers.

Student showcases & exhibitions

Each year, campuses host end of year exhibitions which are a great opportunity for friends, family, dignitaries and the general public to view students’ work.

I’m hugely into art and ever since I was little I’ve drawn, but now I want to go into games design. I’ve learnt so much since I’ve been at Coleg Gwent and the teachers support and guide you. I want to do two years of games design at Coleg Gwent at the end of this course and then on to Cardiff University for a third year.
