UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design (Graphics, Illustration & Game Arts) — Overview
This flexible route offers an in-depth understanding of the techniques and applications used in graphic design, illustration and game arts.
You’ll be taught by a dedicated course team including professional designers, illustrators and interactive specialists who will guide the development of your drawing and design skills, encouraging you to experiment with materials and techniques while teaching you how to communicate ideas in powerful and memorable ways – giving you the confidence to present and discuss your work with employers or universities.
Among the more specialist digital skills that you’ll develop are technical and creative image manipulation and 3D computer modelling, working with digital technologies such as Unity, Maya, 3D Studio Max and Adobe creative software.
You’ll develop an understanding of the context of interactivity and games design, including the evolution of mobile technology for handheld devices and apps.

“I really like the individuality of the course and that you’re given the freedom to work independently. You learn about a variety of different subjects in a relaxed environment – and there are great resources available too.”
