About the Course

With our open learning approach, the OCA’s Visual Communications degree (comprising of Graphic Design and Illustration courses) provides a real alternative to traditional campus based learning. Our inspiring course materials enable you to work at your own pace, in your own time, and whenever you choose to study.

The BA (Hons) Visual communication course offers an accessible distance learning experience through which students are encouraged to develop a sense of visual enquiry, expand their horizons, and begin to find a personal creative voice within their practice. The course provides an interdisciplinary approach to study through which students can choose and explore a breadth of subjects, moving towards specialisms in graphic design, illustration or a combination of these subjects.

Degree aims
To widen access to art and design education at undergraduate level through Open and Flexible Learning.
To provide an interdisciplinary course of study across graphic design and illustration through which students develop specialisms.
To provide an intellectually stimulating programme of study based on high quality study material and tutor support.
To encourage the development of a personal and/or professional understanding of visual communication practices and to establish a personal creative voice within them.
An opportunity for students to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding creatively and within a range of appropriate contexts.
To develop autonomous learners capable of applying intellectual and practical skills within employment, sole practice, further study, or life-long learning.

The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods. You will receive support from a one-to-one tutor who is also an arts practitioner and you will become part of a thriving UK and international student community.

All of our part time distance learning Open degrees are awarded by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). We have an exceptional range of part-time Open courses at Higher Education level in painting, drawing, photography, music, illustration, graphic design, creative writing, textiles, sculpture, printmaking, art history and film.
