BA (Hons) Study AbroadVisual Communication

Course Overview

Semester Study Abroad courses are for students and professionals who wish to spend time abroad, developing their creative skills and gaining credits towards their university degree, but do not necessarily want to spend 2-3 years in another country.

Students are fully integrated with our BA (Hons) students in an exciting, creative University environment.

Semester Study Abroad Visual Communication course is broad and exciting, incorporating elements of both graphic design and illustration. Its focus is on solving communication problems using a variety of media. Students explore typography, print and screen-based media, web design, animation and illustration. The first part of the course provides skills in these areas, and students have the opportunity to work on projects that have been set by industry, as well as course briefs. All briefs are designed to reflect current industry practice.

Portfolios are required from all prospective candidates who wish to do a Semester Study Abroad course at the Arts University. The portfolio’s purpose is to show us how you communicate and translate ideas visually. Your portfolio will be reviewed by the course leader and a panel who will determine the most appropriate year of study in the course for each candidate.

Other type of programmes, such as bespoke courses are also available. For more information or to apply for a course contact us on +44 1202 853624 or email studyabroad@aub.ac.uk
