Graphic Design - Media & Information Design in Brussels

Academische Bachelor / Exchange Programme

The supply of information is growing at a phenomenal rate and is becoming increasingly confusing in our digital society. Now more than ever, we need creative designers to guide us through this abundance of information. In this four-year academic programme, you will learn to be a graphic designer and how to deal creatively with new media technologies and present information in a visually clear and attractive way.


How many deaths did the climate crisis cause last year? How fast did the coronavirus travel around the world? What do black holes in space look like? How do refugee flows move across continents? What are mafia clans or terrorist networks like? You learn how to capture these kinds of themes in powerful images or stories using the most advanced graphic tools. You start with the basics of graphic design, in print and on-screen. You learn how to communicate effectively with text, image, shape, colour, symbols and composition. You become familiar with digital code and data. How can you use new technologies to design exhibitions, for example?

After completing our programme, you can easily find work in the creative sector: you can work for renowned graphic design agencies, design studios, communication and news services, media companies and web agencies. Or you can start building up your own design studio.

Programme for exchange students: As an exchange student you’ll enroll in the first semester of the 3rd bachelor year. The semester will focus on:

  • You’ll learn how to use your acquired skills and formulate your own design assignments based on imposed themes;
  • You’ll broaden your knowledge in different facets of digital media;
  • You’ll explore your hardware and software beyond everyday digital devices;
  • You’ll learn to use tools and techniques for registering, documenting and presenting your research process.
What do you need?

A good command of English (level B2) is required to make the most of your stay with us.
