Fashion and Textile designer
If you desire to understand the relationship between people and the natural world, to learn how to improve the environment and to design the buildings of the future, then architecture is the course for you.
The practice of architecture requires a unique combination of creative, analytical and personal skills. Our course establishes the cultural, environmental and technical framework and provides you with abilities in the analytical processes, research techniques and communication methods needed for architecture.
BA (Hons) Architecture is accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), leading to an exemption from the RIBA’s Part 1 examination, the first step towards a professional qualification.
This course offers you the opportunity to explore graphic design through a range of digital and traditional media. The curriculum is based around thematic teaching with a strong emphasis on research-informed design practice.
It will empower you with creative problem-solving skills and technical knowledge that will enable you to join and contribute to the exciting, dynamic and constantly evolving the world of media and design.
Graduates from BA (Hons) Graphic Design have gone on to win BAFTAs, art direct magazines, create identities for worldwide brands for high profile clients such as Beyoncé, Coca Cola Zero and Nike Air Jordan and have overseen on-set graphics for big blockbuster films such as Casino Royale and the London Grand Prix simulation.
