Prague College HND Graphic Design and Interactive Media graduates offered places on final (3rd) year of BA (Hons) Graphic Design, BA (Hons) Graphic Design (Multimedia and Web Publishing) and BA (Hons) Graphic Arts courses at Teesside:
We were very pleased to welcome Paul Denison, Head of the School of Arts and Media at the University of Teesside, on a working visit to Prague College. Paul is also in charge of international student recruitment, and the "working" part of his visit included discussions with students and faculty regarding our Graphic Design program.
We are pleased to announce that our current and upcoming HND Graphic Design and Interactive Media graduates who expressed interest in completing their final year of the Bachelors program at University of Teesside were all offered places on the final year of either BA (Hons) Graphic Arts or BA (Hons) Graphic Design.
Prague College would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our HND Graphic Design students, lecturers and Simon Gray, Course Leader for HND Graphic Design, who have proven that the programs at Prague College are of a high quality and world class.
Both Paul Denison and the Director of Prague College, Douglas Hajek, expressed their interest in extending cooperation between the two schools of Art and Design. As Prague College has just introduced a BA (Hons) International Business Management program in cooperation with University of Teesside, it is fitting that the first area of cooperation will be to develop a Bachelors degree top-up that could be taught at Prague College and awarded by University of Teesside.
Paul Denison also delivered a highly topical and personal lecture on Christopher Dresser (1834-1904): Pioneer of Modern Design.
Dresser is currenty the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Prague Museum of Decorative Arts, and his work plays a key role in design history.
