University Centre Somerset - Bridgwater & Taunton College has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
With this course we pursue the development of visual communication intelligently. Students learn the invisible language of form, composition, balance, structure, rhythm and hierarchy coupled with the very visible language of communication.
The 1 year top-up course is designed to refine skills already developed either through the two year Foundation Degree, through experience studying at another institution or prior industry knowledge. Modules are developed with an emphasis on theory and practice, alongside employability skills. Students who study this programme graduate with the following skills.
a working knowledge of industry-standard equipment and software
a professional understanding of the strength and usage of visual communication
an understanding of how to evaluate a client's needs and to respond successfully to them
experience of working as part of a professional team, gained through group projects and work placements, and through entering national and international design competitions
- develop one's own visual signature, enabling one to generate and express one's own personal ideas and beliefs
Assessment is based on 100% course work and we undertake continuous modular assessment. Studio-based assignments are augmented by lectures, seminars and workshops throughout the year
