Course summary

This is a practical Master’s in Graphic Design, grounded in professional development and research. We encourage you to work independently and collaboratively, with and alongside students of visual communication, illustration, photography, and other Design and Fine Art specialisms.

You’ll build a strong professional context for your practice, and receive excellent academic and technical support from specialist practitioners, technical demonstrators, designers, researchers, theorists, professors and lecturers.

On successful completion of the course, your increased confidence and abilities will be clearly evident in the portfolios you’ve developed, and you'll be ready to move into industry or to continue to further study.

Overview

Working alongside other postgraduate students from Textiles, Visual Communication, Illustration, and Fine Art, you’ll develop your own projects while undertaking practice-led research, theory and professional practice modules.

Specialist tutors and technicians will guide your progress, supporting you to create your own approach and make your design outcomes more successful.

You'll use subject-specific studios and workshops and have access to specialist software and computers. Our excellent art and design library provides access to books, ebooks, magazines and periodicals and is supported by a dedicated team.

The year-long Design Master’s culminates in a public exhibition. Our aim is for you to graduate with a broad, informed outlook, a genuine confidence in your abilities and the professional skills necessary to succeed in your chosen specialism.
