After graduation

Further Education

After completing their Bachelor’s degrees, graduates may enrol in a Master programme in design (MA Design) or art (MA Fine Arts), or in other Master programmes at other art academies. In addition to our own Master programme in Type and Media and Non Linear Narrative, graduates have gone on to pursue Master’s degrees at many renowned institutions, including the Royal College in London, the Yale School of Art in New Haven, ECAL – Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne, Werkplaats Typografie at ArtEZ in Arnhem, Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam and the University of Leiden.

Professional Perspective

The Graphic Design department educates students to become critical thinkers and versatile practitioners who develop outstanding concepts for visual communication. Graduates excel in their professional careers through their extraordinary conceptual and visual abilities, extensive knowledge of the profession and the world, strong technological curiosity and highly developed social engagement.

Our graduates practise their profession in numerous ways, from independent work to small studios and large agencies with dozens of employees. Many businesses employ in-house graphic designers, such as museums, architectural firms, software companies, publishers and media houses. The clientele is just as diverse, from private individuals to public institutions, corporate giants to state organisations, and local beauty salons to international broadcasting stations.
