projects 2017/18

WARNING: it will be my aim to give you plenty of project work! :)
I firmly believe that you will only learn by doing.

While only 2 of the projects will be assessed – I would recommend that you aim to work on as many of the projects as you can. You will end up with a strong portfolio of work ~ ready to take on the web :)
