Syllabus

The first year of the Bachelor's Degree will allow you to discover the world of design. You will learn the basics of all forms of drawing, familiarize yourself with graphic, digital, and 3D design softwares. Last but not least, this first year will help you become acquainted with the different approaches to creativity in the graphic & digital design sectors.

The second and third years of the program are centered around vocational learning modules on the one hand and artistic and academic modules on the other. They include conceptual and semantic teachings in relation to Global Sustainable Design.
These two years are made up of four semesters with a core module and a set of personal development courses for each semester to enhance your academic journey.

In second year, the program will allow you to pick a certain number of subjects to enhance your academic journey. For instance, you will be able to pick a subject from a different specialisation, such as interior design, video game design or graphic & digital design.

As an undergraduate student, you will have to complete an internship for a minimum of 20 weeks during the three years of your Bachelor's degree. A 4-week long internship is required at the end of the first year and 16 other weeks will have to be completed during the second and third years of the degree.

These internships are mandatory and will give you the opportunity to get some first-hand work experience. They will facilitate your integration into working life and make it much easier for you to join multidisciplinary teams and work for a graphic design studio, an architecture agency, or for a design, communications or creative agency.
