BTEC Extended Diploma in Graphic Design


Although ‘Covid’ has had an impact on much of the curriculum, our Graphic Design students have continued with their studies using Adobe Creative Suite at home during periods of lockdown.  Dudley College has made sure that all art students have access to Adobe software for the duration of their course in order to support their studies both in college and at home.  The work on show here is just a snapshot of some of the work produced over the past two years.  While our students are taught digital skills, they also learn traditional art and design skills in order to develop a broad portfolio of art and design for their progression onto higher education.  Some of our recent students have gone on to study at degree level in subject areas such as visual communication or graphic design, but also illustration, animation, fashion illustration, automotive design, architecture, interior architecture, jewellery design, digital media, and many other creative pathways.  

Over the past few months all our students who made university applications were accepted (as usual), and generally on their first choice.  Some have chosen to begin their studies at degree level, and others have decided to stay on at Dudley College for a Foundation Year.  Well done all – it’s been great working with you.  Good luck for the future.
