Graphic Design (Level 2) Diploma at Tresham College of Further and Higher Education
This exciting course introduces you to new ideas about design, photography, illustration, design software and traditional drawing and printing skills. You will create an individual portfolio of work that will help you to progress to a Level 3 study programme.
You will study a range of core and optional units that develop skills in design, page layout, photography, illustration and typography. You will have time in the new Apple Mac suites to develop your creative digital skills.
A minimum of four GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade D or above including English and preferably maths, OR a Level 1 in Art and Design with a positive reference and equivalent qualifications in English and maths.
Continuous assessment takes place throughout the course.
You will be expected to buy your own drawing materials (drawing pads, sketchbooks, pens, pencils etc.) You will also be expected to contribute to two or three trips, each costing approx. £15 each.
Level 3 study programmes in Graphic Design, Photography, Fashion, Media or Art and Design.
Entry is subject to a successful interview. You must bring a portfolio which shows examples of your art, design or media work, which should demonstrate an enthusiasm for the subject. We are looking for potential and interest - not a perfect portfolio yet!
