Creativity needs the right working environment in which to flourish, and at Havering College we provide our students with the very best facilities and teaching. Our investment in a purpose-built Centre for Creative Arts has ensured that our students have every possible advantage at their fingertips. The broad spectrum of innovative and cutting edge work produced by our students reflects the huge amount of diversity within the Centre. As a sign of our passion for creative arts we have been awarded Artsmark Gold by Arts Council England, in recognition of our commitment to, and excellence in, arts education.

The BA Hons Graphic Design explores a range of visual communication related disciplines including Typography, Editorial Design, Branding and Corporate Identity, Advertising, Motion Graphics, Animation and Interactive Design. You will also explore design history and the whole course is underpinned by research on a number of levels. The course gradually develops through progressive levels of specialism at years 2 and particularly 3, reflecting the individual students interests and strengths. Work placements are encouraged at level 2 and at level 3 students stage and a London based Graduation exhibition is staged. There are live projects with local and London based agencies and visits from practitioners.

Assessment methods

Assessment takes two forms. There is formative assessment and feedback during modules and summative assessment at the end. Modules are marked by two independent assessors and then internally and externally verified. Students are encouraged to undertake self and peer assessment and efforts are made to ensure that the whole process is transparent and accessible. Grade profiles to date have been significantly above the national average.
