Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) (Top-up) RMIT University in Singapore



Course info


Developed and awarded by RMIT University, Australia

RMIT University’s School of Media and Communication is at the forefront of media and communication education, research and practice.

With the integration of communication strategies and the realisation that designers no longer work with visual technologies alone, the programme retains the distinctive identity and design-culture of each discipline while incorporating into each module opportunities for collaboration across the disciplines, to equip students with the creative conceptual thinking skills to deal with the changing communication design needs in the global economy.

Design, communicate, change the world

Communication Design is concerned with developing the message and creating new media channels to reach the intended audience.

This holistic approach seeks to attract, inspire and motivate people to respond to messages, with a view to building brand awareness, moving sales, donating to humanitarian purposes, or voting for a political party.

Examples of Communication Design practice include the information architecture and design of Websites, typography, illustration, advertising, ambient media, visual identity design, the performing arts, copywriting and professional writing of creative text.

Students will have the opportunity to travel to Melbourne, Australia for their study trip to explore and learn art and culture in the world of communication and design.
