Design is everywhere; physical spaces, virtual spaces, illustrations, graphics and photographs all influence our daily decisions. Design degrees now recognise the diversity of the creative industry and allow students to develop strong creative skills while exploring their own desired disciplines.
Studying design is challenging but rewarding, and a degree in the subject can take between three and five years to complete. Design degree courses equip you with an ideal combination of both practical and theoretical skills. The majority of design graduates specialize in a specific area – for example, 2D or 3D-design, product or web design, fashion or textiles, or photography – but there are courses that give a broad overview of the whole process.
