Graphic Design and Communication A Level

Level A-level


What will I study?

Our grade one outstanding course is broad and experimental in approach and includes one or more areas of graphic communication with the possibility of exploring a combination: illustration, advertising, packaging design, design for print, communication and computer graphics, multimedia, animation, web design, film, television and/or video. You will create design work to solve graphical problems and address commercial briefs.

Is this course right for me?

This course is a practical making/creating course which uses a vast range of specialist materials and art techniques, it is 60% practical portfolio and 40% practical exam. The first year of our Practical Portfolio component builds knowledge, understanding/skills through working on themes; the second year becomes more focused on you and the development of your personal ideas and professional practice.

Where next?

Students progress on to careers in the creative industries such as graphic designer, illustrator, web design, commercial print, television, media and advertising.
