VCC’s Graphic Design Diploma — Advanced Entrance program concentrates on conceptual thinking, understanding audience, problem solving, design theory, technical expertise in Adobe Creative Cloud, and both print and web development.

Advanced Entrance candidates require a certificate in a similar program from any other institution in Canada or abroad or a previous Digital Graphic Design certificate from VCC. Advanced entrants join the second year of this two-year, full-time program.

Classes take place at VCC’s Mac lab overlooking beautiful downtown Vancouver. Courses are taught by experienced professionals using a practical curriculum relevant to today’s fast-changing graphic design industry.

Second-year diploma students will not only learn design and web theory, but also operate a hands-on design studio that is open to the public and will take on real clients.
