Web Design


All the essentials - from advanced web page construction to slick Flash graphics.

Course overview

The Internet is at the cutting edge of new media and rapid expansion of business online means there is an unprecedented demand for digital media talent in all sectors of today's business world. The Web Design Certificate has been created to give you the skills required to meet this need.

The course starts with the basic building blocks of HTML page development. It is aimed both at students who are complete beginners in this field and also those who have a knowledge of other technologies but need to update their current skills base in this important sector.

The course is hands-on and uses student centred learning, working on projects geared towards practical real-life applications. Class groups are small and led by successful practicing web designers. Training is built around the essential industry standard web construction tools - Adobe Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop. The course therefore gives students readily adaptable skills that will be applicable in all manner of Internet based roles.

What the students' say…

The decision to study at Hove College wasn't one I made lightly, I was in a full time job but had a strong desire to move into web design. It was a big risk, but one that definitely paid off! I have loved every minute of the course and can't wait to put my newly learnt skills to use. The tutors were fantastic and although I was apprehensive about returning to study, the tutors and learning environment made the transition very easy. Thank you!
