• What will I learn on an Art study programme?

        By progressing from level 1 to 3, you’ll have plenty of time to turn your raw talent into the skills that creative directors and business hiring managers are looking for or to be self-employed through freelance graphic design and web designer jobs. You could learn about design theory, media processes and the works of other visual artists and craftspeople. As part of your education, you’ll also have opportunities to tackle real life design briefs and the design process from local businesses and organisations.

      • Why choose a MidKent College Art & Graphic Design study programme?

        Our tutors are all industry professionals and will give you the best support and guidance possible to aid you in your career path. Our students have had great success in a range of national competitions including WorldSkills and the FE Week and Me photography competition. 

      • How is English & maths involved?

        If you’re aged 16-18 years old, English and maths will be a key part of your study programme. You’ll study both subjects at a level which is appropriate to you. Building on your English and maths skills will give you the ability to quote for projects and communicate your ideas effectively.

      • What have your past students gone on to do?

        Some of our students have become full-time self-employed photographers, others have gone onto local graphic design agencies or university.

      • What facilities are available?

        The fantastic facilities include studio workspaces and a photography studio.

      • What’s the difference between an Art course and a study programme?

        Traditionally you may have studied an Art course, where you would only study the qualification, such as magazine layouts, life drawing and packaging. An Art & Graphic Design study programme is so much more than an Art course!

        This change to study programmes is due to national feedback from employers saying young people need to have more than just a “qualification”; they need to have the skills to work in their chosen industry. A study programme encompasses the subject qualification, English and maths skills as well as work experience and personal development skills. You can read more about the study programmes here.

      • What can I do afterwards?

        Career opportunities could include being a photographer, graphic designer, art therapist, interior designer, set designer and other graphic design jobs. Alternatively, others may choose to be a website designer, games designer or illustrator! If university is of interest to you we can also support your UCAS application process.
