GRAPHICS - DESIGN and VISUAL COMMUNICATION 31F - Full Year

GRA31F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Case

The Graphics - Design and Visual Communication course at Level 3 course extends the knowledge and skills established in Levels 1 and 2, applying these to more individualised design contexts from the spatial and product design fields e.g. house design or furniture design. Well-articulated visual communication of ideas and thinking needs to be demonstrated through advanced visual communication and presentation techniques.

As some of the coursework is online it is highly recommended that students bring an appropriate device to class.

Students will achieve between 14-26 credits during the year depending on their interests and abilities.

If a student achieves 14 Level 3 credits in this course it will be counted as an approved subject for University Entrance.
