Designers don’t just make things beautiful and purposeful, they create the items that we come to rely on every day, the ideas that propel us forward and change the world. After all, where would we be without Times New Roman, WhatsApp, or the Nike Swoosh?
Whether you’re passionate about a particular path or still exploring what it is that interests you, our Bachelor of Design will give students skills and knowledge across a range of disciplines, with core subjects in 20th century design, typography, brand and identity design and more.
As Victoria’s oldest design school, Swinburne gives its students access to academics who are experts in their fields, strong, industry partnerships and connections, and technical, real-world skills. Learn to think strategically about design problems and work collaboratively with clients towards solutions.
No matter what type of design career you’re envisioning, a Bachelor of Design will give you the fundamental skills to work as a designer in the industry and role of your choice.

Throughout my degree, I worked on a variety of exciting design projects that helped me build my portfolio. For one of these projects, I won an Adobe Design Achievement Award. Swinburne allowed me to develop my self-confidence and gave me the courage to be heard and seen.
