Heyy,
So I've just completed my Gcse's and I have to choose subjects for my A-level. I want to do graphic designing later on, so for that what subjects would be most useful? I want to choose subjects relating to art and marketing strategies.
I have an idea of choosing: computer science, art and design, business.
Can you please advice me and help me out?
Thank you

Computer Science, Art and Design, Business are good options.

Do you have a DT/Graphics A Level?

Have you done all those subjects and do you enjoy all of them?

Hey

Here at Portsmouth and equally across many UK Universities, no specific A-Level subjects are required for entry for a graphic design A-Level.
However, a portfolio is required, therefore any art/graphics based subject may be useful to help build this up https://www.port.ac.uk/study/courses...raphic-design\

However, I would really recommend picking subjects you enjoy, it will make the experience so much more smooth!
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions

A few colleges actually do Graphic Design courses for A-Level. Not too sure where you're from but here near me in London there was a graphic design course at my college! Business sounds great in relation to marketing, yet I don't know much on computer science. Good luck!

Choose a creative/design subject, then whatever else interests you. The ones you've selected are fine, but choosing art and design, history and English would be just as relevant. Good graphic designers have a broad knowledge of many fields so it's good to keep your options open. Also, be prepared that you may want to do a foundation year before you apply to Universities.
