Course summary

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree.

Graphic Design at the School of Art and Design is a practical study of contemporary forms of visual communication. Taught in a cluster of Communication Design courses including Illustration, Animation, and Advertising and Branding Design, it combines practical design skills with a reflective and outward looking emphasis on how design affects change, through creative problem solving, collaboration and entrepreneurship.

We believe that design responsibility, with regards to ethics, sustainability and inclusion, is an essential value for a contemporary designer, and are fundamental themes of our course projects’ context and debate.

Solving problems in creative teams, the Graphic Design course examines and designs for a wide range of contexts, including digital content, interface design, web and social media, editorial design, print and publishing, moving image, visual identity, typography and graphic illustration. Students work on live briefs, submit for national competitions and participate in collaborative projects with leading design practitioners.
