Design Degrees

Design, advertising and communication play a key part in our lives. From billboards to mobile apps, we are surrounded by the creativity of design professionals.

With our wide range of design degrees, you can choose the course that’s right for you. All design courses share a common approach of creativity, gaining skills, and theoretical debate. This is supported by industry-accredited tuition that incorporates the latest technology, as well as core values of ethical and social responsibility.

Our design courses are created with industry in mind and we aim to prepare you for the workplace by the time you graduate. This includes students working on a wide variety of professional briefs, which are built in to many of our design courses.  Our students have worked on live briefs with brands such as Nike, British Airways and Cardiff Blues.

We’ll encourage you to undertake work experience as part of the course and there’ll be plenty of opportunities for networking. Our Television and Film Set Design students have taken part in placements on successful shows, including Doctor Who and Sherlock.

Design students from the University also have an established record of awards success, collecting prizes at the YCN, D&AD Awards and Student Starpack design awards to name but a few.

All our design courses offer a stimulating, creative environment with brand-new dedicated studio space. Our Cardiff Campus has excellent technology for design students, so you’ll develop your skills using the latest hardware and software, alongside students working in related disciplines.
