Course outline

Graphic design is a major factor in the success of most businesses, from marketing and creative consultancies to magazines and publishing companies. A degree can lead to opportunities at every level, from local newspapers to international advertising firms. However, we understand that you don't always know what path you want your career to take at degree level. If you're interested in becoming a graphic designer, but are worried that your skills won't be suitable for a degree, don't despair. This is the course for you.

Our foundation course includes a year of introduction to the fundamentals of design, looking at where ideas come from and how to develop them. We will show you how to question and re-evaluate your designs, testing alternative solutions to produce the best end result. We will get you to think out loud on paper, helping to hone your graphic skills. Over the year you will learn all the necessary practical, technical and theoretical skills to help you automatically progress to degree level.

We provide fun projects at a fast pace that will soon get you up to speed before taking the degree. Hit the ground running by taking our Foundation levell course to get you started on your way to a career in graphic design!
