Graphic Design Level 3 BTEC Extended Certificate at Monks Walk School

Course description

This two year, full time course in Graphic Design is all about visual communication. We see it around us every day in advertising, magazines, books, posters and billboards, CD covers and web sites. The work of a Graphic Designer is evident anywhere when a message, an idea or an emotion needs to be conveyed with words or images, or a combination of both. The course will also give students the opportunity to appreciate the work of other artists and designers and to learn about associated professional practice.

Entry requirements

  • APS: 38.5 or above
  • A*-C GCSE in Graphic Design or related subject.

Future opportunities

An ideal route for students looking for places at universities and colleges, or careers in Graphic Design and related subjects.
