Studying Graphic Design

What to look forward to

At Middlesex, our teaching is personalised so you get a tailored experience to help you develop your creative identity. Unlike other institutions, our class sizes are kept small allowing you maximum contact time with our expert tutors and facilities.

You will spend the majority of your time in the studio alongside a close-knit community of students, emulating the studio working environment in the creative industries.

  • Reach your full creative potential in our industry-standard facilities

    • You’ll have our state-of-the-art facilities at your fingertips to help develop your own identity and produce your best possible work.
    • You’ll benefit from access to our photographic studios, state-of-the-art digital printing, studio and lab computers, as well as workshops with technical support and free access to the Adobe Creative Suite and free printing.
    • You’ll be working in our bespoke graphics studio space and will be encouraged to use these spaces as much as possible.
  • Hands on learning and collaboration

    The majority of your learning will be on campus, meaning you can maximise access to our fantastic facilities. Your seminars and small group studio discussions will also take place face-to-face to allow you to see and discuss work with your classmates, as well as experience what it’s like to be part of a vibrant creative community.

    There will also be blended online activities in your timetable where that extra flexibility benefits you. 1:1 tutorials can be online or in person depending on your preference, and some more theoretical elements of your learning will take place virtually.

Innovative teaching from experienced practitioners and academics

You will have a wide variety of choice throughout the course, allowing you to build a portfolio specific to your interests. Across three years, you will test out various areas of Graphic design and build a portfolio which contains projects that suit your career path.

You’ll be taught by professional practitioners from across different areas of graphic design and will be seen regularly by a tutor – four times a week in the first and second year and three times in the third year. This means you will constantly be getting feedback on your work and are therefore able to improve your work and develop your skills regularly.

Support for your successful career in Graphic Design

Get real world experience by tackling live industry briefs set by industry specialists who will provide in-depth feedback on your work and will frequently review your portfolio.

In your second year, you will complete a workplace preparation project where you’ll create a portfolio, CV and research where you’d like to work – all with the support of industry professionals.

We take part in competitions such as D&AD, ISTD, RSA, CCA and Penguin, which look great on your CV!

The team is looking forward to welcoming you to Middlesex! With our state-of-the art facilities and dedicated team, we’re excited to see you develop into a professional, ready for a career in the creative industries.
