From the design of traditional advertising and branding to website design and motion graphics, our BA Honours Graphic Design programme encourages you to explore and extend your creativity whilst equipping you with the necessary technical skills to physically realise your work. We’ll encourage you to actively explore how to visually communicate ideas creatively, inventively and effectively. The course was initiated in 2017 and has very quickly established itself as one of the leading programmes in Graphic Design in the MENA region.

Mode of Study Options: It is expected that by September 2021 we will have In-person classes and these could be supported by an online element. It is too early to commit to a 100% Online at present as it will depend on the Health & Safety situation and KHDA permissions. We can say at present that if the Health & Safety situation warrants it there could be a 100% online along with in-person classes.
