DIPLOMA IN VISUAL COMMUNICATION

This programme is designed for creative people who want to pursue an applied, practice & career-oriented qualification in Art Direction or Graphic Design, which will enable them to ‘hit the road running’ when they enter the job market. 

In addition to having a strong practical component integrated into most theoretical modules, the students will be mentored by both their lecturers as well as industry gurus who provide their services regularly.

Moreover, the intensive Work Based Learning programme in 3rd year is designed so that students get real life assignments and are exposed to the real world, rather than a simulated environment.

Therefore, upon completion of the programme, diploma students are highly ‘work-ready’ and most will be offered permanent employment, as is the case presently with our degree graduates.
