Course summary

Graphic Design is a very broad subject, with students increasingly able to choose a wide variety of career paths after they graduate. This pathway, based around the current successful BA (Hons) Graphic Design course, allows students to gain the specialist skills required for advertising and branding projects. Workshops will introduce art direction, copywriting, campaign development, brand strategy and how to design dynamic visual identities. Dedicated modules will give a thorough grounding and understanding of the commercial applications of both subjects, as well as exploring creative applications of emerging technologies.

Why choose this course?

  • Outstanding connections to industry, including high profile live briefs.
  • A forward-thinking curriculum which prepares our graduates for a career in rapidly evolving industries.
  • A reputation for success in the most-coveted student award schemes.

What will I study?

Teaching consists largely of project-based work supported by relevant 'skills' based workshops. Students tackle a huge variety of briefs ranging in complexity and time scales. There's also a variety of learning experiences with some projects being team-based, some collaborative with other courses and others are worked on as an individual. We have our own dedicated studio space and encourage a competitive, demanding yet light-hearted atmosphere and pride ourselves on providing a lot of direct contact between staff and students. The teaching team is comprised of individuals who have worked at the top end of the design, advertising and branding industry and now want to pass on their knowledge and expertise. We also organise an annual international study trip, as well as visits to agencies, museums and galleries in London.Study abroad

The course has internationally-focused curriculum, so the option of studying for another year in another country is a fantastic opportunity that many of our students take. There are opportunities to gain global perspectives, develop language skills, work overseas and build an international network or contacts. Where you choose to travel depends on your interests, ambitions and language skills, but you’ll be able to choose from over 100 international partner universities, each fully accredited for the quality of its courses and student support. The year is designed to help you become a confident, highly skilled design professional ready to work in a global environment.
