What will I learn?

Design and Visual Communication Level 3 challenges students to develop a complete architectural design solution, including a thorough examination of environmental factors, human considerations, and construction knowledge. Students have the option of working on either a spatial design brief or a product design brief, and will present their work through an internal exhibition or two external assessments: a portfolio showcasing design exploration and an essay on good design principles.

This course will leads onto further study for a wide range of careers; Architecture, Drafter, Landscape designer, and various Engineering pathways.
