Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. When completing your application make sure you choose year two. Applicants already holding a relevant HND qualification can apply for direct entry to year three, again where this is the case please make sure you choose year three when completing your application. The BA (Hons) Visual Communication and Design gives you the opportunity to acquire the skills to generate ideas and solve problems creatively, skills required for a successful career within the creative industries. Working through a range of practical projects you will develop a clear understanding of the creative design process, techniques and business. Visual communications is not restricted by the definition of specialism; likewise, this programme is not attempting to produce designers that are labelled by a pre-defined discipline. The course aims to nurture visual communications that are responsive to emerging design issues and the focus of your studies will be: -the realised navigation of the design process -engaging in reflective practice -exploring the changing role of the designer and design
