In this unprecedented time of major change and new challenges in the world of Visual Communication, we offer an exciting course of study that will engage you and stimulate your passion and mind.
This distinct course is for developing visual artists and designers and will appeal to adaptable students with enquiring minds. The course encourages you to develop your own approach to the study of Visual Communication through a combination of brief-led and self-initiated projects.
You will have the opportunity to sample a wide spectrum of disciplines - from design for print to illustration, from photography to typography, animation and moving image. This will allow you to find your strengths and your own style in response to communication problems.
You will study:
Advertising, Film making and Animation, Editorial Design, Photography, Web Design, Graphic Design
Illustration, Typography, TV Graphics
A minimum of five GCSEs at grade A*-C, including English language and an art, design or craft subject, or a level 2 art and design qualification at overall merit grade, including English and Maths at level 2.
You will also need a strong portfolio of art and design work which shows your enthusiasm for the subject.
Art is a highly successful and nationally recognised part of Kirklees College, with its own distinctive identity and reputation. With further and higher education courses available at Batley School of Art and the new Huddersfield Centre, we offer an ideal creative working environment with excellent facilities, well equipped studio spaces and the latest design technology.
Our students benefit from a rich educational experience that equips them to succeed in their chosen professional careers. Whatever their chosen discipline, our priority is to encourage each of our students to develop their personal brand of imagination and creativity, to help them acquire the knowledge, skills and experience needed to realise personal ambitions and to find their unique voice as an artist or designer.
We do this by fostering a creative, vibrant community of people bound together by a shared visual language. We are committed to giving our students the space and skills they need to thrive in an often turbulent world. We may be small but we punch well above our weight. You will not find a more inspiring place to learn.
