On Bachelor level, our institute offers Visual Representation and Graphic Design programs, which provide students with a similar graphical skillset. We recommend the first to students who are interested in graphic design and have excellent manual skills, while Graphic Design is for students who are mostly interested in visual communication and creativity.

Obviously, these skills don’t exclude each other, only the emphasis is different. On each of our programs, the main goal is to train students to understand and use everyday signs and pictures effectively and to enable them to create and convey visual messages.
