BA (Hons) coursesVisual Communication

Course Overview

From the icons on your smartphone to the signs in an airport, from the logo on a cola to the type on your favourite magazine, visual communications play a powerful part in shaping our choices.

Visual Communication is a broad discipline, encompassing graphic design, image generation, typography and screen-based design. From the start, the course focuses on hand drawn imagery to develop a feel for the shapes and styles that connect with audiences.

Throughout the course, your industry knowledge will be strengthened through independent research, as well as collaborative and individual participation in ‘live’ and prestigious competition briefs, set by the likes of D&AD and ISTD.

Practical experiences to develop your skills

We’ll help build your visual awareness and understanding of the world around you. As well as plenty of theory and debate, you’ll have the chance to work on live briefs with other students and find work placements in creative businesses.

Visual Communications underlines the importance of good ideas. You’ll leave with all the practical skills you need to work in a vibrant and exciting industry. Our graduates work as freelancers, in small design companies, and with larger firms, both locally and internationally.
