Course summary

Studying our BA Graphic and Communication Design course at the University of Leeds teaches you to become a creative and critical thinker, engaging with society and exploring practical applications of design and communication. You’ll be equipped with a broad range of resilient skills that are adaptable within the ever-changing design landscape. Through a variety of immersive modules, you’ll learn about innovative technologies, design theory and develop the ability to respond creatively to global challenges in a lasting and positive way. Our course balances research activities and contextual studies as much as creative practice. Through a combination of making, reading, and writing, you'll become a critical and creative thinker and practitioner. Our challenge-led teaching will help you to develop the key theoretical, practical, and professional skills vital in the creative industries. We embrace user-centred approaches, teaching graphic design as a transformative system to create powerful social and economic impact. You’ll build a strong foundation in subjects such as typography, interaction design and design for print, completing challenging briefs that will push you to achieve your best. At every stage of the course you can also choose options to match your passions. By offering you a Year in Industry or a year studying abroad, we provide the flexibility to support you in shaping your education to reach your ambition. With two independently led projects in your final year, you’ll have the chance to specialise and tailor the focus of your studies and produce two ambitious, large bodies of work with which to impress potential employers.

Qualification requirements

Art Foundation course We welcome Art Foundation course students. However, the qualification is not a requirement for entry and doesn’t usually count towards entry requirements, which are based on A-levels and equivalent qualifications. In exceptional cases, if you have not studied Art and Design at A level, we may consider an Art Foundation course in combination with grades ABB at A level. Extended Project Qualification: If you’re taking the EPQ, we may make you an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. In this case that would be BBB, plus EPQ grade A.
