Graphic Design - Art and Design AS/A Level at Exeter College
Graphic Design is about communicating ideas and information through graphic imagery. You are then encouraged to develop individual solutions to design problems in both traditional and digital media.
- Learn how to present your ideas to others through visual and other means
- Investigate a range of design specialisms - illustration, advertising, packaging, photography
- Explore your own creative ideas through the use of different media to develop your portfolio
- Take part in visits to experience the work of others, both contemporary and historical
You need five GCSEs at grade C or above (including English language and maths) and three GCSEs at grade D or above and grade Cor above in art or a related subject such as media or graphic products. If this has not been achieved, then a project can be undertaken to demonstrate the student’s suitability for the course.
You will be assessed informally through assignments and your final grade will be determined by externally moderated end of year assignments.
You could progress onto an Art and Design Foundation Diploma and then a Graphic Communication Foundation Degree both here at Exeter College. A Level Graphic Design is an excellent preparation for Further and Higher Education courses in many Art and Design disciplines. It is also a valid entry qualification, when combined with other relevant subjects, for academic courses in higher education.
