About the course

MA Graphic Communication Design is a two-year master’s with a research-oriented approach to graphic and communication design. We use graphic and communication design practice to ask questions and intervene critically in contemporary visual and media environments. Our community of students and lecturers is highly international and our graduates around the world are re-defining practice in exciting ways.

We are just now beginning to review applications for a late September 2019 start on a rolling basis. While many of our students do come from an art or design background, we actively encourage applications from a wider variety of backgrounds and are always happy to discuss individual circumstances. More details about the curriculum and application process are available here:

Ogilvy Summer UX Internship

At Ogilvy Experience Design, we want to thank you for taking the first step in building a partnership with us by sending your students to Immersion Day last fall. We are very pleased to announce the next step: a summer internship program!

We believe that in order to design for everyone, everyone needs to be included in the design process. In that spirit, we will be welcoming two students on a ten-week creative internship.

On top of a weekly curriculum and bi-weekly presentations and panels, students will work side by side with industry professionals, learning about the day-to-day workings of an agency.
