    What is the programme about?
    The central purpose of the programme is the study of graphic design and all of its related disciplines. The programme offers a high level of experiential learning through studio workshops and online activities which make intellectual and skillbased demands of the student. Importance is placed on the development of the creative potential inherent in the individual. This is achieved by encouraging students to formulate knowledgeable, independent judgements based on research, analysis, critical and creative thinking and objective criticism. This programme prepares students for careers as professional graphic designers and other areas of employment such as advertising, typography, packaging, corporate design, television graphics, multimedia and e-learning. The programme looks for students who can demonstrate a potential ability to work imaginatively and creatively in graphic and visual media; who can apply original thought to a given problem and can demonstrate a range of skills; that are open to new ideas and are willing to involve themselves in the various different disciplines and practices of visual communication.

    Top 3 Reasons
    1. Good employment prospects. Areas of employment include Graphic Design, Advertising, Packaging Design, Typographic Design, Illustration, Television Graphics, Multi-media Design and Web Design.

    2. Active learning is at the core of our teaching.

    3. A wide range of subjects are taught ensuring that students are creatively challenged and well prepared for industry.

    Class Contact Hours
    Initially 23 hours per week in Year 1; however, as the programme progresses, the course of study becomes increasingly self-directed.
