    Course Content

    You will begin by exploring the basics of typography and visual communication before being encouraged to experiment with type and image to solve graphic design problems.

    The course is built around the four key themes of graphic design: typography, visual communication, design in context, and integrated design. These happen at the same time each year (but always with different briefs) so that you get a real sense of achievement as you progress.

    In your third year you will be able to focus on building your portfolio in your area of interest, for example print, editorial and book design, advertising, corporate design or digital media. The course culminates in a school-wide degree show that attracts employers from industry.

    Our course will be primarily based on the development of your studio practice but you will also have lectures, seminars and workshops.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
