Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design

About this degree

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 designs to promote or enhance products, services, organisations and concepts.

You will develop a broad theoretical foundation and practical experience in various core areas of graphic design such as Digital Design, Drawing, Applied Colour and Design and Animation. The emphasis throughout is on intensive studio-based design training where you will practise 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. In your third year you specialise in the area that most interests you, either Advertising and Design or Multimedia.

We attribute the success of this degree to our dedicated and industry experienced teaching staff, a curriculum that is relevant and ahead of trends, and state-of-the-art facilities. Most importantly, our focus is on real-world application, completing projects, attending workshops and on practising essential design skills. This blended approach ensures that you graduate as well-rounded, highly skilled and self-reflective designers with additional skills for the workplace, such as working independently, meeting deadlines and communicating effectively.
