Programme information

This programme aims to develop a specialist approach to graphic design and visualisation through combining traditional and contemporary approaches in the field.

It will provide you with opportunities to develop a personalised visual language through visual thinking, expressed in physical and virtual means combining traditional and contemporary media. Theory and practice are intertwined and students express their ideas through the production of written assignments and the production of artefacts, both aligned with their specialist area of interest.

Once the online application is completed, we will ask for a Project Proposal Form to be completed. The project proposal is requested as part of the initial assessment process and can only be accepted after you have applied via the Postgraduate Application Portal.
