Studying Graphic Design

What to look forward to

At Middlesex, our teaching is personalised to ensure that you get a tailored experience to help you develop your creative identity. Unlike other institutions, our class sizes are kept small so that you get the 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

    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.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you. Practical workshops that involve hands on working/making like printmaking will be face to face and you'll be able to go into the studio to learn specialist techniques such as screen printing.

    Some of your seminars and small group studio discussions will also take place on campus 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.

Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

Our approach to teaching and learning is evidence based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

Our students particularly liked having the more contextual classes and our web design projects online and recorded, meaning the material was available on demand whenever they needed it.

We were able to host a diverse set of Zoom guest lectures from designers globally as a result of the flexibility of being online. We are excited to bring these new elements of our teaching into next year and beyond, meaning you get the best learning experience possible.

Our annual end of year physical degree show was transformed into a fully online showcase, MDX Creative Graduates. Not only was this a fantastic way of exhibiting the amazing work by our creative students, but being online also meant our students’ work could reach industry professionals all over the world! Due to its success, we’re going to be carrying this forward in future years to run alongside a physical event.

We use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control. Students have appreciated the additional resources such as Padlet which they use to share their work with each other, Slack which they use as a messaging board and Zoom open studios which they use as a social space to talk about their work and experiences. We’re excited to build on these new innovative uses of tech when you join us.

Support for your successful career in Graphic Design

Tackle live industry briefs in your second year where designers work with you to provide feedback.

Make the most of our industry links, e.g. workshops run by Adobe and every year we take part in the Creative Jam (usually taking place at the BBC). We also have an extensive alumni network, many of whom come in as guest speakers.

We take part in competitions such as D&AD, ISTD, RSA, CCA and Penguin, which look great on your CV! We regularly win D&AD and RSA and this year one of our students won 2nd place for the Penguin award.

The team is looking forward to welcoming you to Middlesex! With our placement programme, 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 industry.
