About the course

Diploma in Graphic Design programme has been developed to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world of design. Experienced lecturers will guide students throughout this hands-on course in order to expand their creative abilities and ensure that they are able to use the latest industry standard software. Internships will provide invaluable opportunities to put into practice all the knowledge and skills gained.

Why is it unique?

  • Design software is a vital part of graphic design. Thus, we start training students to use graphic software from the very first semester.
  • Students are taught with the latest industry software: Adobe Illustrator + Adobe Photoshop, and more.
  • The course includes business elements because we don't only want students to be good designers, but we want them to be great entrepreneurs so that they are able to sell their skills and create a lasting and successful career.
