Graphic Design Pathway Program

If you've always been interested in a career in graphic design but have no previous experience in the industry, then this Graphic Design Pathway Program from Open Colleges could be just what you're looking for. The course combines the D0121 Graphic Design Essentials with the CUA50720 Diploma of Graphic Design giving you a fast-track to a graphic design career.

The CUA50720 Diploma of Graphic Design encompasses comprehensive training in all facets of graphic design, which is essential to assume a position as a Junior Graphic or Digital Designer, Freelance Designer or Content Developer. Participants will learn how to combine technical, creative and conceptual skills to develop designs that satisfy client requirements and tackle a range of visual communication challenges.

The program is specifically intended to provide participants with job-ready skills; hence, all assessments have a real-world focus to prepare students for various types of design briefs and graphic design roles that they will encounter after graduation.

Throughout the course, participants will build a portfolio of work that demonstrates their skills, ideas, creativity, and capability to meet client briefs. This portfolio can serve as a valuable resource when approaching potential employers and clients.

PLEASE NOTE - Open Colleges is a privately-run RTO, not government-run like a TAFE, so they cannot offer government funding. Please check eligibility requirements before beginning an enrolment with Open Colleges.
