Leeds Beckett University

Program description

This course will allow you to develop your own approach to the study and practice of graphic arts and design through a combination of brief-led and self-initiated projects. You will have the opportunity to explore a wide spectrum of disciplines, including design for print, illustration, photography, typography, animation and moving image. This will allow you to find your strengths and develop your own individual style.

You will drive your own learning and set your own targets, as you would in a real working environment. You will work alongside practitioners and on live briefs from organisations such as Harvey Nichols, the BBC, Leeds Art Gallery and the NHS.

We will give you the opportunity to show off your projects to the public and impress industry by exhibiting your work at the end of your final year.


Placement opportunities are available to you, with exchange opportunities to Hiroshima and Estonia, and through our University partnerships with the Frans Masereel Centre in Belgium and the European Exchange Academy in Berlin.


Our modern multi-media studios include a dedicated CAD suite and specialist software, such as REVIT, allowing students to develop skills in 3D design and building information modelling.
