Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design

National ID: CUA60315 | State ID: AZL7

 

The Advanced Diploma is regarded as being ‘industry-ready’ and the goal of this course is to develop a stunning portfolio that culminates in the end-of-year graduate show. The graduate show is the highlight of the year and is attended by industry stakeholders, many of whom are alumni and are now leading the industry.

The Advanced Diploma course splits into two streams - User Experience Design and Illustration. This means that although everyone does the common core units there is the opportunity to specialise in electives.

At this level, live briefs are integrated with real clients. All students become members of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA), the industry’s leading body.

North Metropolitan TAFE also hosts the annual AGDA folio review where feedback is received from industry members in how to best structure the students’ portfolio.

Industry visits are also conducted where host guest speakers shed light on the latest trends in the industry.

This course is demanding, but the rewards and satisfaction are great. Many of the graduates go on to enrol into a degree in design and receive advanced standing at all WA universities. North Metropolitan TAFE has pathways and agreements with Curtin University in particular.

North Metropolitan TAFE is an Educational Member of DIA. This qualification is listed as a DIA recognised course on their website.
