Course summary

BA (Hons) Graphic Design (with Integrated Foundation Year and Professional Practice Year) is a five year degree programme, including a foundation year to help develop your creativity before you embark on year one of a degree. Your fourth academic year would then include a year in industry placement. Our well-established BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree course at UCA Farnham is about giving you the knowledge and skills to excel in a wide range of formats - from branding to typography, UI/UX design to print media and digital publishing. You’ll take part in challenging live projects, competitions, and extra-curricular industry placements, so that by the time you graduate you’ll have a wealth of knowledge and experience to take forward into your career. Past projects include creating designs for Nescafe Azera packaging, making standfirsts and other graphics for ITV Daytime, and creating window displays for Benetton. And you’ll be part of a fantastic creative family, where lifelong friendships and professional connections are formed, and where alumni return to class year on year to pass on their knowledge to a new generation of makers.
