Programme Structure

We offer two programmes at Dalian, BA (Hons) Graphic Arts and BA (Hons) Fashion Design.

BA (Hons) Graphic Arts


Graphic Arts aims to develop ambitious and confident students who are able to compete in and contribute to the media and communications industries. You will be encouraged to develop your creative skills as well as employability skills such as strategic thinking and responsible problem-solving.

There is a large emphasis on studio practice, technical-workshops and live projects inspired by industry, which will provide you with the opportunity to create ambitious work. Specialist training and workshops delivered in a supportive learning environment provide the critical input for you to develop a refined portfolio of contemporary designs.

 

BA (Hons) Fashion Design


Fashion Design stimulates your exploration of fashion and helps you develop industry standard skills and techniques. Specialist projects will challenge established thinking about fashion and will enhance your understanding of this complex subject. Studio-based activities and workshops will provide experience of practical techniques such as flat pattern cutting and fashion illustration. 

Our teaching is of the highest calibre and aims to inspire both imaginative study of this dynamic and fast-moving area of the creative industries, and the development of a high-quality portfolio of fashion designs.
