Take your existing graphic design skill set to the next level with our Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design.

Prepare for an exhilarating creative career by working with industry while you study. Gain industry experience (and a showstopping folio) by responding to briefs from real industry clients – all the while giving you a competitive edge to land a job when you graduate.

Understand target markets, what catches their attention, and how to justify creative decisions based on commercial objectives. Further hone your typography, illustration, branding, animation, digital design or environmental graphics skills. Get set for the future of design by creating concepts for social media, UX, UI, exhibition design, publishing and packaging. Plus, refine the project management, business, communication, design strategy, presentation and collaboration skills that’ll set you apart.

Through our tight-knit and vibrant design community you’ll have the opportunity to build lasting connections – the type of connections who just might make that crucial introduction to help you land your dream job.

Find your creative calling as a graphic designer (where you could work in advertising and graphic design agencies, or in-house at various corporations), UX/UI designer, branded environment designer or packaging designer. Or, if you’re looking to take your studies even further, you could pathway into the Bachelor of Design. The choice is yours.
