BA (Hons) Graphic and Media Design builds on the rich heritage of graphic design education at London College of Communication.

This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).
What can you expect?
You can expect to be encouraged to be innovative and to initiate change; to integrate practice and theory and to work both individually and collaboratively. You’ll possess technical skills but not be slaves to them, be able to make connections between disparate activities, be concept driven and capable of working across media. You’ll understand the complexities of the audience and how to utilise your studies to plan your future direction, whether in work or through continuing studies.
You will explore a variety of materials, media and methodologies and develop skills relevant to a career as a broad-ranging design professional. You will also take part in live, collaborative projects with industry to develop your entrepreneurship and introduce you to our commercial partners. These have previously included Diabetes UK, British Film Institute (BFI), Interbrand, Dorling Kindersley, the Design Museum, International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD), YCN, Illy Coffee, NHS, Moleskin and D&AD.
The course is delivered by experienced practitioners, tutors and other specialists including visiting speakers. The tutors on the course are active practitioners building industry links supporting the Diploma for Professional Studies, where students can undertake work placements for a year anywhere in the world.
