Dundee City Campus

Challenge yourself with a range of design projects set by tutors, external design agencies, and international design bodies. You will be encouraged to explore, experiment, and innovate as you learn how to turn your ideas into high quality design concepts.

Our course is a balance of digital and print media. You'll gain skills in both traditional and contemporary practice - from screen printing and bookbinding to using the Adobe suite of products and laser cutting.

Working with our industry partners, you'll gain an understanding of contemporary branding and marketing design, and develop skills in typographic/editorial design, print, website, social media, and motion graphic design.

We provide you with a working environment that mirrors contemporary professional practice, including a dedicated work desk in one of our shared studio spaces. We believe in building community, and our studio environment helps to support good communication and small-group teaching.

We have links with a number of design agencies around the UK and can often offer placement opportunities.

“I think the course is perfect, because you’re supported, but you also have to figure things out by yourself – it has been a step up from the General Foundation course for me. The facilities are also really good.”
