Program description

BA Honours Graphic Design

From the design of traditional advertising and branding to website design and motion graphics, our BA Honours Graphic Design Program encourages you to explore and extend your creativity whilst equipping you with the necessary technical skills to physically realise your work. We’ll encourage you to actively explore how to visually communicate ideas creatively, inventively and effectively. The course was initiated in 2017, and has very quickly established itself as one of the leading Programs in Graphic Design in the MENA region.

Why Study BA Honours Graphic Design at Middlesex University Dubai?

Our BA Honours Graphic Design degree educates, inspires and prepares our graduates to be the creative designers of the future. The course has been developed to embrace contemporary changes in the creative industries, and is built on a formidable tradition of creative exploration and design education developed at our London campus. We offer challenging, enjoyable projects with wide ranging outcomes and the exploratory nature of the course will encourage you to challenge the boundaries of graphic design practice itself. You will have the freedom to eventually develop your own distinctive creative voice, guided by an enthusiastic staff team and supported by fantastic facilities.

Throughout the course, we focus on teaching you about communicating ideas and information through exciting problem solving projects in branding, magazine/editorial design, typography, advertising, packaging, exhibition design, editorial photography and art direction, moving image and digital media. You will explore conceptual thinking, media and print processes, industry standard computer software applications and understand how to use graphic design to present an argument, inform or persuade your target audience and solve visual communication problems to a professional standard.

Our students on this Program in London are identified by leading design organisations such as D&AD, RSA and ISTD as among the best graduates nationally, winning numerous awards and achieving regularly at international student assessment schemes. Graduates of this course in the UK have gone on to work for design consultants, advertising agencies and media providers all over the world.
