Programme Structure
Year 1
The first year challenges students to explore diverse approaches to design problems and apply their creative skills in different ways. It will also challenge any preconceptions that students may have about Graphic Design. During the first year, students will also learn many of the essential skills needed to work in Graphic Design.

Subjects include:

  • Design Principle
  • Design Process
  • Design Practice
  • Typography (Elective)
  • Advertising Design (Elective)
Year 2
In the second year, design projects are often company-sponsored, and involve working directly with the client (live projects). The subjects will help students to meet this challenge and develop their skills and knowledge to a professional level. Other projects involve working to a national or international design brief. In this case, students need to demonstrate the ability to communicate their design ideas professionally, using a variety of media and techniques.

Subjects include:

  • Graphic Design in Context
  • Translation & Transmission

An International Study Tour will be scheduled in Year 2.

Year 3
Through a process of research and discussion with academic staff, students determine a body of self-directed study that allows them to develop a personal area of interest related to the field of Graphic Design. By taking increased responsibility for the management of their own work, students are prepared for life as a professional designer.

The number and content of the projects students undertake in the third year can be negotiated. However, the academic team will offer advice that enables students to develop a portfolio that best supports their career aspirations. It is also essential that students support their dissertations and design projects with a body of thorough and convincing research and development.
