Is this course for me?

Being a graphic designer opens many doors. If you know that your future lies within Graphic Design, this course is perfect. With modules tailored to honing your skills as a professional designer, you’ll learn to manage your own projects, work on live briefs, and adapt well to a creative environment. We start you off in the broad spectrum of Graphic Arts. In your first year, you can sample all areas of graphics, using your own studio space as your creative base. You can also choose to change course, opting for Graphic Arts, Graphic Design or Illustration. The choice is yours.

More to design than using computer software

Our design studio has a stunning range of equipment for you to realise your ideas. We don’t restrict you to using computer software, even though we have everything from the Adobe Creative Suite programs to plotter cutters and photo studios. You can craft beautiful design solutions using our silkscreen, letterpress, and litho equipment, as well as our laser cutting and 3D printing technology. We make sure you get as hands-on with our equipment as possible. And our staff are always around to help you get set up.

Work in a professional environment on campus

Our course gives you many opportunities to explore the diverse world of graphic design. Which ever graphic specialism interests you, be it magazine design, music identity or campaigns, we give you the freedom to write your own brief and start realising your ideas. Every week, you’ll work with a professional graphic designer who will critique your work and help you improve your designs. Workshops with other students help prepare you for life in an agency where you will need presentation and ideas generation skills as you meet clients.

Our live briefs come from a range of companies, such as Faber Publishers and Saatchi advertising agency. To build your experience, we support work placement with companies that we have long relationships with. Recent students have worked for publishers, packagers, agencies and magazines as varied as Wallpaper, Rankin, Quarto Books and Macmillan Books.


Why choose Buckinghamshire New University?

Our Graphic Design students benefit from an amazing design studio and team of enthusiastic design tutors. And with London only a short train ride away, you’re never too far from inspiration. We have many visiting designers from the capital running blocks of workshop-based sessions in fields as diverse as editorial design, infographics, typography and ethical design.

Enjoy graphics abroad as well as on our campus

Our second year students have the opportunity to study on Erasmus, a European exchange programme. You may be able to study design in creative institutes in countries including 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 study tour to a European design capital such as Paris or Barcelona.

Start building your creative network on campus

You’ll work in a design studio alongside a diverse community of designers, each working on their own projects, just as a professional graphic design studio would function. You’ll study in a close-knit Graphic Design tutor group where everyone’s input is recognised and valued. Not only will you make friends for life, you’ll also make important connections that will last through your career, and you’ll form a network, just like you’d find in any design group.


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.
