Learning and assessment
Year 1 introduces you to the theories, practices and processes associated with the discipline of Graphic Design. This provides a solid grounding for years 2 and 3.
Year 2 focuses on personal exploration, application and developing your personal voice. We encourage risk taking and you'll learn to challenge established languages and processes. This will help you to create disrupted, innovative and imaginative solutions. We also encourage you to seek out your individual interests as well as work in teams.
In your final year teamwork continues and you will develop projects based on your own career planning. You will consolidate your practice. And prepare for either employment, self-employment or further study. Creativity, critical thinking and complex problem solving are transferable skills. These skills cross disciplines and significantly contribute to employability.
After you graduate
