Course Introduction

Graphic Design at UEL is taught by a team of lecturers who believe the subject has the potential to influence society and bring about change. You will study on a Graphic Design programme that doesn't simply focus on agencies or briefs in its approach to learning. You will discover the possibilities of clear, inspired thinking as well as valuing how to handle media and materials and define new uses for them. Make the most of the course's connections with key figures who work at the highest level of design practice to improve your skills, gain practical work experience and prepare for your future career in graphic design. Companies that have employed our graphic design graduates include leading design and ad agencies, typographic design studios, corporate graphics companies and moving image production houses.
