Is this course for me?

If you have a flair for design and want to improve your creative talent, Graphic Arts will give you the opportunity to develop those abilities. Graphic Arts brings together many elements of the graphics industries into one course including typography, illustration, branding, advertising, film, publishing or photography. You’ll enjoy working with our community of enthusiastic and friendly students, in our huge design studio. Students rate our course highly, hitting a 88 per cent score for satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2016.

A portal into many different areas of design

With so many design options to choose from, we understand that you may not know which to study. We’ve designed this course so you can try everything. If you find that you really enjoy illustration or graphic design for example, you can specialise in those areas during your second and third years.

Work in a professional environment on campus

Our course gives you many opportunities to explore the diverse world of graphics. As you move into the higher levels of the course, you’ll have the freedom to write and present your own briefs, and start realising your ideas. Every week, you’ll work with a tutor who will critique your work and help you improve your designs. Presentations with other students help prepare you for working in an agency where you may have to present your ideas to a client.

Our live briefs come from a range of companies, such as Puma and Williams Murray Hamm. To build your experience, we encourage work placements with companies we have long relationships with. We’ve had students working for publishers, agencies and magazines such as Wallpaper, Dragon Rouge, Rankin, Quarto Books, Metropolis and Holmes & Marchant.


Why choose Buckinghamshire New University?

Graphic Arts is just one of the courses that give students the skills to work as a graphic designer. We also have two other design courses that run alongside Graphic Arts – Graphic Design and Illustration. In your first year all the students learn together before specialising in Graphic Arts or taking one of the other options.

Enjoy graphics abroad

Our second year students get the chance to study on Erasmus, a European exchange programme. You’ll have the opportunity to study design in creative institutes in countries such as Belgium, Denmark, France, and Germany. We also have a New York trip in the spring with visits to agencies, design, film and multi-media companies, and a trip to a European design capital such as Paris or Barcelona.

Be inspired by our team of lecturers and professional designers

Our teaching team consists of seasoned professionals who still work in their specialist disciplines. With London only a short train ride away, we also have many visiting designers from the capital running blocks of workshop-based sessions in fields as diverse as bookbinding, branding, typography and ethical design.

Expert facilities for all your design needs

You’ll work in a design studio alongside a diverse community of designers, each working on their own briefs. You’ll have access to a wide range of equipment. At Bucks, we have some of the best printing equipment in the area – such as silkscreen, letterpress and litho printing, as well as 3D printing and laser cutting technology. On campus, you’ll study in a creative community. You’ll study in a close knit tutor group where you’ll know everyone. Not only will you make friends for life, you’ll also make important industry connections that will last through your career. Bucks students form a network, just like you’ll find in any design company. 


This module map provides a list of the modules that make up your course.

Each module is worth a specified number of credits (typically either 15 or 30 credits for undergraduate courses). Compulsory (or ‘core’) modules cover key subject knowledge, while ‘option’ modules enable you to develop your own interests. For a full-time course you must take modules worth a total of 120 credits at each level of the course. The number of option modules you can take depends on the number of compulsory modules at each level. You can find more information about how your course is structured via the Academic Advice pages.

Our teaching is informed by research and employer requirements, and modules change periodically to reflect developments in the subject area. In addition, where we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an option module, this may not be offered. If an option module does not run, we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.
