We follow the exact same course structure as the University of Salford, with the same modules and opportunities, only your first year is based here at Carmel. The second and third years will be studied at the landmark New Adelphi building, the University of Salford’s pioneering new build.

Studying your first year at Carmel will allow you to be part of a smaller cohort than the vast majority of other Graphic Design courses, which means you will have far more tutor time and support. This allows us to work closely with each individual to develop your skills, confidence and personal interests within design, as well as challenging you and driving you to succeed.

You will learn to develop idea-led solutions, embracing the digital while preserving traditional processes of design. Through a range of workshops, seminars and lectures, this course covers a range of specialist skills in areas such as typography, branding, copywriting, printmaking, image making, bookbinding, motion design, multimedia design and app design, to name just a few. Be inspired, think creatively, respond to change, be innovative, develop solutions, captivate, articulate, entertain and inspire!
