This course is the one-year top-up following the FdA. Communication Design develops creative thinking and this exciting interdisciplinary course encourages experimental, collaborative and conceptual work as well as ensuring that students have an awareness of marketing, environmental and cultural issues.


The focus will be on the development of the student as an individual, capable of working both collaboratively and independently, and on producing graphic designers, animators, illustrators and web designers who are innovative, self-motivated and able to work successfully within a variety of design environments.


Students work on self-initiated and external briefs, some winning national and international awards.
