Our BA (Hons) in Graphic Design is partnered with the course at UCLan and shares the same ethos, providing a broad and progressive education for the creative industries. You will produce dynamic solutions to problems through creative thinking and a flexible approach to a diverse range of assignment briefs, competitions and live assignments. You will be inspired to produce creative design solutions, respond to change, be innovative and a great communicator. You will learn to develop idea-led solutions, embracing the digital while preserving traditional processes of design production and thinking.

Assessment method

Basic skills development will be the focus of level 4 modules and you will be encouraged to develop and enhance these skills further at level 5. You will take part in regular group critiques and discussions along with lectures and seminars that will introduce you to historical and contemporary theory and contextual themes. You will apply this learning to your own work maintaining a continuous link between theory and practice. At level 6 a more independent ethos is fostered; you will be expected to plan your own learning with support from module tutors culminating in the writing and completion of your self-initiated project.
