Why choose this course?

The strength of this course is that it enables you to develop a sound base of conceptual and technical skills, along with a deep understanding of the real design process. 

With an outstanding reputation in the UK for developing the innovative, commercially aware and adaptable multi-skilled designers demanded by today's creative industry professionals, our graduates are employed across a wide variety of industries.

All three years feature two core modules covering practical and theoretical work. We encourage you to develop your own interests and express your viewpoints, imagination and visual skills within specialist areas such as:

  • print
  • illustration
  • advertising
  • branding
  • new media
  • motion graphics.

Throughout the course you'll get regular feedback via group tutorials, individual portfolio reviews and personal development planning.  Lectures in design theory are complemented by guest lectures from industry professionals.  Team working in small groups is also an important feature, helping to develop your communication skills that are essential in many commercial graphic design practices.
