This Graphic Design HNC, Level 4 careers-related course, provides a professional introduction to the subject using both traditional and digital methods. There is an emphasis on innovation, creativity and skills development, providing the opportunity to follow your chosen pathway into a career in Graphic Design and other creative industries.
You will learn and develop a wide range of skills including type and letterforms, design principles, digital illustration, 3D graphics, motion graphics and digital/graphic manipulation.
Being taught through a combination of lectures and in-class practical activities will help you to embed learning and appeal to a variety of learning styles. Your learning will be supported by Moodle - an on-line electronic resource platform managed by your module tutors, by the excellent LRC at the Aireville Campus in addition to the College’s Specialist Support Centre.
Your time in College will be spent in informative lectures, workshops and tutorials, however there will be an expectation that you will spend the double amount of time, developing, ideas, techniques and processes outside formal College time on significant independent study.
The HNC is a nationally recognised qualification in its own right and is the first year of a HND course.Year 2 of the course (HND) is designed for students to specialise in a chosen field, working independently on self-directed projects. Students may continue on to the HND providing there a sufficient number of students wishing to do so.
