The Graphic Design with Foundation Year (Hons) course from University of Wolverhampton encourages students to engage with design at a professional level across all print and screen media. Ideas and their development are all-important and we create an environment that encourages creative thinking.
The Foundation year prepares students for university level study. Successful completion of our Foundation course permits access to any of our Art or Digital Media BA (Hons) or BDes (Hons) degree courses, which include Fashion, Fine Art, Furniture Design, Glass and Ceramics, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, Paint and Print Making, Photography, Product Design, Sculpture and Environmental Art — The Foundation year begins with modules aimed at providing transferable study skills and then, in the second semester, gives students the opportunity to study more specialist modules, with a focus on various aspects of Arts and Digital Media.
Our programme of assignments allows you to design for areas including branding, editorial, exhibition, packaging and visual identity. You will use digital tools to develop screen-based and web solutions that are interactive, immersive and challenging. Most importantly, the course encourages you to become a thoughtful designer – producing creative work that has a place in and benefit to contemporary culture and society.
Potential Career Paths
Employability is core to the ethos of the School of Art’s learning and teaching, and BA (Hons) Graphic Design provides opportunities to experience and engage with professional and industrial contacts. At Level 4 you will be encouraged to encounter and experience all aspects of your specialist area and further embed yourself into the subject through visits and speakers. At Level 5 you will have the opportunity to experience professional practice and will work on subject-specific briefs led by external clients/organisations.
At this level there will also be emphasis on live projects / placements that offer opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative practice. Level 5 is designed to give you the opportunity to take risks and experiment within your subject but also to meet and network with other students across the School of Art. Level 6 emphasises self-initiated and negotiated projects and provides you with the time and support to develop your individual voice as a designer.
