Subject

Graphic design

This course enables students to top up their existing HND or Foundation Degree to a BA (Honours) in Art and Design, awarded by our chief university partner: Nottingham Trent University. It will suit students who wish to progress to 'hands-on' creative careers, including Graphic Design, Fashion and Fine Art.

Combining practical studio work in your specialist area with contextual and theoretical modules; an enquiring, creative and challenging approach to work is promoted. We encourage the belief that designers have independent thoughts, feelings, reactions, and attitudes which they need to externalise and visualise within theoretical work and practical design practice. Specialist areas are available for studio practice and students have access to supporting workshops.

**Core modules include**
• specialist studio practice

• contemporary issues in design

• practice-led research

• advanced studio practice

**Assessment**

You'll be assessed through individual and group assignments and presentations, research tasks, and individual studio project work. Your work will be displayed in an end-of-year professional portfolio and public exhibition.

**Bursaries**
We want our courses to be accessible to students from any background, so we’ve put together a cash support package in the form of non-repayable bursaries to provide financial help where it’s really needed. Details for 2019-20 will be advertised once approved by the university regulator – the Office for Students (OfS). Please check our website - www.nottinghamcollege.ac.uk - for more information.

**Your career and progression**

What career or progression opportunities are there? Many of our graduates set up their own small businesses. Some choose to venture into other sectors and are equally successful in gaining employment due to the transferable skills acquired on the course. Previous graduates have found positions with companies such as: Pendragon plc; Broadway Cinema Nottingham; Hyundai; ASDA George; Brown Dog; Defacto and New Fat. Others have continued their studies with postgraduate degrees or teacher training.
