Bachelor Graphic Design - Full English Programme in 3 rd Year

After learning the basics in the first year, students discover new subjects in the 2nd year, such as motion design, typography and page layout. At the end of the 2nd year and in the 3rd year of the programme, students are introduced to new techniques and tools that will enable them to carry out their first projects in publishing, visual identity, advertising, digital design and so on. In this way, they acquire the vocabulary that is essential for visual communication applications.

The 3 rd year of the Bachelor’s Cycle in Graphic Design, taught entirely in English, allows students to deepen and synthesize the skills they have acquired. The core subjects of the Bachelor’s programme are still present, but the subjects are more complex and involve a more global approach to artistic creation. Students are required to work in teams, and to present and defend their creative projects in front of juries.

The 5-year programme leads to RNCP qualification no. 34364 Designer - Project Manager level 7 (Bac+5 level) registered by decision published on 16/12/2019 - EDC certifier
