Our Graphic Communication degree at our Farnham campus is far from your average graphic design course – you’ll be a designer by the end of your first year and, after three years, we’ll consider you a design expert in your specialist field.
Through a unique mix of creative discovery and business development, you’ll specialise in your area of interest while also building a strong entrepreneurial skill set. You’ll be perfectly equipped to achieve outstanding success in a highly competitive industry.
At the start of the course we’ll introduce you to the vast array of avenues within graphic communication – from branding, typography and advertising, to print media, digital publishing and graphic design.
With our academic staff offering their expert support, you’ll explore all areas of the discipline to understand where your strengths lie and decide which vocation you would like to pursue.
We’ll also give you ample opportunity to put your learning into practice with challenging live projects, competitions, and extra-curricular industry placements.
Recent students have designed window displays for Benetton’s flagship stores, worked with Sky on the creation of a new television channel, undertaken live projects for Bestival in conjunction with JDO Raw, and have also had the opportunity to take part in competitions held by D&AD and YCA.
You’ll be encouraged to collaborate, socialise and share ideas within our unique community of creative students, as well as utilise the industry knowledge of our experienced design professionals and tutors.
Our graduates go on to achieve high profile roles with leading names such as Burberry, Harper Collins, River Island, and Sonic, working in areas of graphic communication such as branding, typography, editorial design, graphic design, freelance design, and brand strategy.
