Bachelor of Media Design in Graphic Design – Media Design School (Auckland, New Zealand)

The modern designer is no longer bound by the rules of traditional media design. Choosing to major in Graphic Design will enable you to learn how to develop an idea using text, image, and layouts to create visuals that have meaning.

The Undergraduate Degree in Graphic Design (240 ECTS) prepares visual designers who are capable of devising, programming and creating visual communication, both online and offline, to stimulate users. By combining image and text, a student can develop from a brand image, to advertising, editorial design, signage design, web interfaces design, through typography and the colour code, to imagine and create messages.



Bachelor of Applied Design in Graphic Design – Art Institute (Vancouver, Canada)

In the Graphic Design program, you’ll study design, typography, and color theory. You’ll use industry-specific software to help you learn and create everything from logos and posters to packaging, Web sites, and corporate identity packages. Graduates are prepared to seek entry-level employment such as advertising designer, computer artist, freelance artist, graphic designer, or layout artist.



Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Graphic Design – University of Derby (UK)

The course is studio based, practical, hands-on and creative. It will offer you many different ways to make design work and to explore different contexts for making graphic design work. It will test and challenge you to explore and expand your boundaries about what graphic design is and what it can be.

The course has a rich resource base for you to use. Typically our students work on Apple Macs in the design studio, screen print and Letterpress print in the Print Studios and Laser cut and build prototypes in the wood and metal workshops.

In the last year our first year students have worked with London based design collective ‘Le Gun’ on a two-day drawing event which transformed the Markeaton Design studio into an immersive world of drawn fantastical creatures that covered every wall on site. Our second year students worked with Derby Museum to make interpretive tools to engage the museum audience with the new Ceramics Gallery. Third year students were briefed by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) at Markeaton Street, for this year’s Student Design Awards. The RSA student briefs tackle social engagement and allow students to explore graphic design solutions for real world issues.

In 2015 Our BA (Hons) Graphic Design course achieved 100% satisfaction in the National Student Survey. We were also ranked 6th (out of 70 HE UK institutions) in the Guardian’s University League tables for 2015. Additionally Graphic Design scored 100% graduates in employment (13/14) with 73% in graduate level employment.
