The objective of the one-year Graphic Design Portfolio Course is to provide you with a solid foundation in graphic design and/or to develop your established skills while building an original and effective portfolio for application to BA/MA or professional practice. This is not a computer software course but rather reflects the studio-based and idea generation nature of graphic design. You will have the opportunity to explore the different areas of Graphic Design and participate in ‘live’ industry briefs with BA and MA students.
