No matter what your background is, you will be launched in a training context that will allow you to gain an understanding of the world of design from a global perspective.

The classes at the Three-year course in Graphic Design welcome students from all over the world who want to learn the languages of visual communication and design in order to assert their identity and make an impact.

The Three-year Course in Graphic Design is held in Rome, a city that mixes its magnificence with the exceptional quality of Italian-made design. In this cultural context, you will acquire thinking tools, technological knowledge, and technical/design skills that will enable you to become a versatile professional. In fact, you will be capable of following the overall development of a communication project from conception to completion.

Let your passion for the world of graphics lead you through this extraordinary experience and into a future filled with new visions and projects.

Information to decide

Teaching is based on project management techniques and design thinking, with a focus on advertising campaigns and infographic design. Thanks to this approach, it will be possible to draw unprecedented connections between different projects, including tourism, culture, art, architecture, and food. The aim is to enhance design as a tool to promote an area's unique identity.

The course is rooted in the rich heritage of Italian graphic design and features a team of lecturers owning international experience. As part of the educational approach, you will receive theoretical training featuring extensive project and workshop activities. All this will stimulate you to seek innovative solutions through experimentation.

Students will be able to share knowledge and skills in an immersive, interdisciplinary environment through case studies, business challenges, and project work with partner companies.

You will learn how to develop strategic thinking, which is essential for managing complex projects at all levels. It is our goal to stimulate you to find innovative solutions for different areas, from brand design to advertising, from data visualisation to infographics, from web design to creative coding and motion design.

The course is intended for you, a "future designer" capable of not only contributing to institutional and social communication activities, but also embracing strategic and original thinking, resulting in innovation and new perspectives.

Independent of your career goals (such as becoming a Brand Designer, Art Director, Data Visualizer, or Digital Product Designer), this course will prepare you to work in international communication agencies, design studios, technology companies or digital start-ups, opening up a wide range of opportunities.
In addition, the course is designed to develop a strong entrepreneurial spirit in you. It is also designed to provide you with critical skills such as authoritativeness and leadership, qualities that are essential for leading teams and working groups.

A Graphic Design course taught in English allows students to communicate effectively with professionals and clients at international level, giving them a competitive advantage in the global job market.

Studying Graphic Design in Rome is a significant added value. The city is a crossroads of diverse cultures that are expressed in numerous ways. In addition, it is the most popular tourist destination in Italy which hosts various international companies, institutions, organisations and agencies that promote their activities.

Studying Graphic Design in this context offers students the opportunity to participate in top-class events that the city hosts and work on real projects.
