The BA Graphic Design is a comprehensive and career-focused qualification that prepares you for work in the highly competitive and rewarding world of design. Graphic designers are visual communicators, who develop creative concepts and designs to promote or enhance products, services and organisations.
You will develop a broad theoretical foundation and practical experience in various core areas of graphic design such as Design Studio, Digital Design, Drawing, Web Design, Typography and Animation. The emphasis throughout is on intensive studio-based design training where you will practice and experiment with a range of mediums from drawing to photography, to digital design. In addition, you will acquire broader skills and knowledge in Business English, Communication Science and Business Management, which will assist you in your world of work.

Most importantly, our focus is on real-world application, completing projects, attending workshops and on practising essential design skills.
