Access to specialist resources will support your learning, but is not essential to succeed on the BA (Hons) Graphic Communication course, starting in January 2023.
For UK students studying on this course via our Jan 2023 Entry route, our facilities will be available to supplement their studies as part of our bookable access model. International students based in China will have access to facilities at their dedicated host institutions.
Upon progressing to the second year of study, all Spring Entry students will be based on-campus and have full access to studios, equipment and seminars. With excellent access to technical support, professional studios and audiovisual equipment, you will be able to operate as a full-stack designer, transforming your sketch concepts into packaging, web content and multichannel campaigns with ease.
With north-facing windows, a ‘methods and process’ area, individual studio space and a specialist life-drawing studio, our impressive, open-plan, triple-height Drawing Studio is a huge space, perfect for many different activities and specialisms.
Our Digital Print Bureau offers affordable and quick print services for all our students who are looking for anything from large-format or solvent printing, to photo printing, scanning or vinyl cutting, and a wide range of finishing services.
Our students make full use of our industry-standard dedicated studio spaces – including our infinity cove, green screen, and specialist sound studio (with Foley pit and vocal recording booth) – plus our stop-motion suite, our darkrooms, and plenty of individual edit suites, all up-to-date with the latest industry-standard software.
Our ‘fabrication laboratory’ is kitted-out with the latest in digital design technologies – from 3D printers to 3D scanners, a vinyl cutter, CNC milling machine, CNC router and laser cutter. It adds a whole new level of opportunity for students across all creative walks of life.
With views out to sea and 35 metres of print tables to encourage experimentation, our Printed Textile Design Studios also boast a fantastic Mimaki fabric printer, digital embroidery resources, industrial sewing machines, sublimation printers, a dye lab, heat presses, a tufting gun and a Mac suite. It’s got to be one of the best printed textile workshops in the UK.
