WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR

Our students also develop skills that can enable them to develop careers in a wide range of related industries such as Arts Administration, Education, Media Practice and research and much more.

We foster a creative and professionally focused environment for each student to ensure that the knowledge acquired contributes to the brokering of new connections and an empowering career. Through our curriculum and the diversity within the classroom and student community you can enjoy a dynamic, creative and culturally inspiring education. Experience an interdisciplinary, discursive and innovative approach to Higher Education that involves the fostering of an enterprising and entrepreneurial spirit.

WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE

This course enables further development and exploration of your studies to HNC level. You will build on your prior learning to explore advanced typography along with design projects based around corporate identity and advertising (for print and screen). Live/competition work is a major part of the programme. The course culminates in a negotiated final major project and exhibition. The aim of the HNC Graphic Design is to enable you to develop conceptual, cultural, creative and practical skills and to encourage flexibility, knowledge, skills and motivation as a basis for future studies and career development.

A large part of the course will stretch you in terms of cultural understanding and the interpretation of it in contemporary and historical design and although this course will give you a vocational training that will ready you for industry, it will also act as a tool to open your mind, make new associations in your environment and will make you begin to question the depth and originality of responses.
