Course content

The course offers continuing or recent graduates from creative design degree programmes an opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills, creativity and employment prospects through imaginatively exploring Graphic Design platforms and processes. The expectation is that students will seek to enter the sector into roles such as a graphic designer, art director, graphic artist, graphic product developer or advertiser, or develop proposals for further postgraduate research.

The course is one of a suite of Masters programmes within the School of Art, Design & Architecture and thus offers a multi-disciplinary and international approach to Graphic Design. Students will work alongside students from related disciplines as well as undertaking subject specific modules in Graphic Design Concepts and Graphic Design Processes leading to a Major Project.

Information for international students

International students with qualifications in 'creative' or 'practice' subjects should submit a digital portfolio (pdf) of work with their application.
