BA Graphic Communication overview

The ways in which people receive and consume information is evolving as new technologies emerge.

BA (Hons) Graphic Communication will enable you to keep abreast of these changes and equip you with the skills to work in new emerging areas and anticipate and influence where we are headed next.

This course has built its reputation for the quality of its award-winning students who have gone on to work at top creative agencies in the UK and internationally. It is one of only six courses to be accredited by Creative Skillset in recognition of its vocational skills development. Working in large, open plan studios, ideal for collaborative and individual project work, students are encouraged to solve real-world problems with great ideas — you are as likely to be designing an app or website, making a film or piece of motion-typography as you are to be designing a printed poster or journal.

The graphics TALK lecture programme is designed to expose you to some of the leading practitioners from within the creative industries, such as Sean Perkins (North), Mason Wells (Bibliothèque), Laura Jordan Bambach (Mr. President) and Tom Roope (The Rumpus Room). You will conclude your final year with a degree show at NUA and an opportunity to show your work in London at D&AD New Blood.
