This course aims to equip students with the creative and technical skills necessary for employment as a graphic designer in a variety of professional situations. The Bachelor of Graphic Design involves three years of full-time study. This course is also available at the Mildura Campus. Applicants must satisfy the University’s normal entrance requirements, including a study score of at least 20 in units 3 and 4 of English, or equivalent. It is desirable for all applicants to have undertaken Studio Arts and/or Art. A Diploma of Arts, or equivalent approved qualification, will qualify individuals for entry to the degree course at a level determined by a selection committee. Mature-age students will be considered for admission by the selection committee. Applicants must attend an interview, which is conducted in late November, and submit a folio to an interview panel. A statutory declaration confirming that the work is that of the applicant must accompany the folio. The folio should demonstrate the applicant’s aptitude, creativity, sense of design and abilities in a range of media or in a specialist area. It should contain material relevant to the applicant’s proposed course of study including finished pieces and preparatory studies. Where possible, students should bring the original artwork, but where size is a constraint, photographs or electronic documentation will be considered. The course is undertaken by full-time study over three years. It may also be undertaken by part-time study after consultation with the Graphic Design Selection Committee. Prospective students should check course details with the course coordinator prior to enrolment. All subjects are compulsory. This course is valued at 120 credit points per year.
