CUA60315 Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design

National ID: CUA60315 | State ID: AZL7

Add to your palette of graphic design skills

The Advanced Diploma will make you ‘industry-ready’ and during the course, you will develop a stunning portfolio that culminates in the end-of-year graduation show. The graduations show is the highlight of the year and is attended by industry stakeholders, many of whom are alumni who are now leading the industry.

You can choose from two streams - User Experience Design or Illustration. This means that although everyone does the common core units there is the opportunity to specialise in electives. Our industry consultation outlines the demand for illustrative design as well as a more User Experience/ User Interface approach.

We integrate live briefs with real clients. All students become members of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA), the industry’s leading body.

We also host the annual AGDA folio review where feedback is received from industry members in how to best structure your portfolio. In addition to this, we conduct industry visits and host guest speakers who shed light on the latest trends in our industry.

This course is demanding, but the rewards and satisfaction are great. We have pathways and agreements with Curtin University in particular.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

  • Packaging designer
  • Advertising designer
  • Illustrative designer
  • Corporate designer
  • Web and multimedia designer
  • Graphic design assistant
