Hi

I am starting a Foundation in Art in September 2015 which I hope to do Graphic Design at Further Education in September 2016

Q1) What are the differences between Graphic Design course and Visual Communication, Graphic Communication, Advertising?

Q2) What are the salient points I should look for between these courses if I am more of a hand on person and preferred more on techniques in producing the work first (maybe a bit old fashion) than the digital techniques (not that I do not like it but wished to study from basic)

Q3) Which Universities are best for providing what I prefer? (Any recommendation)

Thanks

Hiya,

Sorry nobody got here sooner, but hopefully this will be useful!

1) Graphic Design has an overview of all the rest of the three, it dabbles in everything. Visual Communication/Graphic Communication is much the same and concentrates on visual language (symbols, colours) and how they are used in graphics while Advertising will include a lot of theory and is more business like than the rest.

That said, every course will be different and there will be options to specialise throughout.

2) Look through the modules and ask lots of questions about them when you're visiting them for open day. At your interview, ask them questions about the modules and what kind of stuff they look at.

3) I can't advise on that, however there is a long list on UCAS. It is for you to find your preferred location and course (tip: the lecturers and modules really make the course - not the rankings).

If you have any further questions, just ask!
