Program Description

Overview

Looking for a creative career? LCCA offers the BA (Hons) Graphic Design with Foundation Year, a course designed to give you all the skills you need to be successful.

Delivered in partnership with TEF Gold Institute, the University of the Creative Arts, the BA (Hons) Graphic Design with Foundation Year will ensure you develop the skills needed to thrive in the graphic design industry by combining theory with practice. 

Prior to starting the BA course, you’ll study a foundation year in which you’ll develop core skills in design including how to use colour, typography, shapes and shading to communicate a message to your desired audience. You’ll also have the opportunity to work in an open studio which will allow you to refine your skills and explore which area of graphic design you think you’d like to progress into.

By the time you graduate, you’ll be prepared for a range of careers including picture editor, graphic and packaging designer, art director and much more. Alternatively, you could consider postgraduate study including our MA Fashion Business and Management and MA Global Marketing and Communications.
