Is it for me?

As part of your course, you’ll work on live briefs and undertake work experience. This will not only help you build industry contacts but also enhance your portfolio of work, which will be crucial to show off your skill set to future employers or clients. Most Graphic Design roles require a Higher Education qualification, so you could progress on to the HNC or HND here at the College after your Level 3 course.
