O que eu aprenderei?

The Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication offers a practice-based approach to learning visual communication. Throughout the course, the creation of new design solutions is driven by rigorous and critical exploration of methods, materiality and technology, and understanding the influence of globalisation, digitization, complexity and interactivity.

Taking a transdisciplinary approach, the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world.

Teaching centres on design studios that integrate practice-oriented learning through tasks that parallel the processes which professionals undertake in industry. A combination of interdisciplinary subjects, industry projects, internships, competitions and international studios develop flexibility and confidence in working across the diverse environments that constitute contemporary design practice. Students are required to undertake the Professional Experience Program that includes a mandatory 160-hour industry work placement.

The course is structured to allow students to focus on areas of specialisation. Throughout all stages, the course requires students to develop an understanding of their own individual design language and theoretical position in relation to historic and contemporary contexts.

By focusing on the high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving practices that lead to the development of innovative, creative and entrepreneurial outcomes, students of the combined degree also gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship, and the ability to work on their own across disciplines. These creative intelligence competencies enable graduates to navigate in a rapidly changing world.

Course aims

The course aims to support and foster a creative and explorative attitude towards the design process, where research and practice are consolidated in design outcomes. It cultivates a collaborative and global vision of design. Through a variety of interdisciplinary subjects, industry projects and international studios, students develop the flexibility and confidence to work in the divergent and novel environments of contemporary visual communication practice.

Throughout the degree students progress through studies and skills development in the areas of form, content, context and concept. First year introduces the key formal concerns of visual communication including image, typography, composition and hierarchy. Second-year subjects engage more closely with content and the interdependencies of form and content. A contextual understanding of design as an outwardly focused activity is developed in third year, with closer studies of audience, society, ethics and industry.

Course structure

Students must complete 240 credit points, comprising 144 credit points in visual communication and 96 credit points in creative intelligence and innovation.


Career options include design roles in graphic design, publishing, advertising, animation, film, television, exhibition, government agencies, and not-for-profit and corporate sectors.
