About the courseThis course explores the ever-changing landscape of graphic design, rethinking visual language by emphasising style, effective communication and future contexts.It aims to engage you in diverse forms of traditional and contemporary media with the aim to build critical understanding, enhancing your individual design thinking and practical experience within the context of an international perspective, a range of contemporary issues and exciting new trends – from generative and gaming design, modular layouts and modern ‘retro’ to the positives of negative space and the brightest pastels.A strong, ideas-based course, it is focused on practical outcomes, which aims to combine visual and written language, achieved through intensive and challenging creative briefs, underpinned by sound academic research, self-critical reflection and contextually relevant practice. You will be encouraged to participate in projects that range across many topical and current themes in design, including globalisation, ethics, sustainability and the environment. You can also engage in graphic design practices, such as typography, photography, copywriting, art direction, animation and interactive design.The course is suitable for those who have already undertaken a sustained period of creative practice in education or industry, and who wish to enhance their career as designers or art directors. We currently benefit from an international cohort of students, particularly recruiting from China, India, Africa, Cyprus and Europe, which aims to provide an international perspective from the associated peer learning opportunities.

AboutCoventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. The origins of Coventry University can be traced back to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. It was known as Lanchester Polytechnic from 1970 until 1987, and then as Coventry Polytechnic until the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 afforded its university status that year and the name was changed to Coventry University.
The main campus of Coventry University is based in the centre of England, in the city of Coventry with Coventry University London just an hour away by train. As a top five UK student city (QS Best Student Cities Index 2019) Coventry offers students the benefits of both a great city experience and a campus with a thriving community.

On campus, TheHub is the centre of student life: it is the place to gather, grab a coffee with friends, have a meal, see a band in the SU, or just hang out. In short – it is TheHub of campus life. But there is also the University’s Sports Centre just across from TheHub, and the Westwood Heath Sports facilities with floodlit AstroTurf and grass pitches for football, hockey, rugby and cricket.
