If you're pretty sure you want to study graphics at Uni, choose graphic design.
If you're not sure, do general Art & Design.
Then seriously consider doing a foundation course before applying to Uni.
Easy!

I chose graphic design at alevel! my teacher encourages us to use traditional art elements as well as digital so I still get too practise those skills. I've definitely learned a lot about both art and graphics by doing this course

Hi there!

Both courses are really good options if you're interested in the creative industries. To summarise the differences between the courses very briefly:

-Graphic Design (Or Graphic Communication as it's called at Plymouth College of Art!) is more a commercialised and modernised art practice. With Graphic Communication, students learn how to become professional designers across core specialisms such as brand identity & communications, digital graphics, motion-graphics, print and publications, typography, social media campaigns, and interactive media design.

-Fine Art BA (Hons) again is a very broad course with students able to learn about art practices across 2D, 3D, 4D, and hybrid mediums, such as sound drawing, performance painting, scale sculpture, video, projection mapping, sound, traditional printmaking, welding, mould making, casting, critical and reflective writing.

Both courses (and all others at PCA) are broad and encourage students to explore and experiment in their practice. The choice of what students want to specialise in during their third year is completely up to them!

If you'd like to check out the campus and see our facilities, then please feel free to come along to a virtual open day or a physical open day (subject to Covid-19 regulations). You can also contact some of our current students via an app called UniBuddy, where we'd be more than happy to answer any of your questions relating to the courses, Plymouth College of Art, or student life in general.

I hope this helps and good luck with deciding on a course!

Yesss! Dundee uni does general art and design (fine art, graphic design, photography, illustration etc) and I think it’s a great option as u get to experiment with everything and then for your second year you can pick which you wanna specify in
