Careers and your future in Digital Media

Our students benefit from Brunel’s close location to central London, the world’s centre for the VFX and design industries and the heart of the UK’s digital media industry.  

This means that you’ll have a wide variety of career opportunities available for you to consider in the ever-changing digital world.

If you opt for a placement course, you’ll go on a year’s industrial placement supported by our on-campus Professional Development Centre. Placements are highly valued by employers and you could be placed at companies such as Amazon, Canon, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Microsoft, the Wellcome Trust, Peerless, Peter Anderson Studio and 87 seconds. While you are on the placement, you’ll develop a portfolio of commercial work which will help you achieve your dream job in the creative sector. Many of our students are offered jobs with their placement companies on graduation.

Our graduates are working as motion designers, 3D artists, post-production artists and compositors. As well as taking on full-time employment, many graduates become freelancers or set up their own companies.
