Academic programmes

The Department of Communication design runs four two-year tertiary-level academic programmes, three one-year collaborative top-up degree programmes.

Our learning experience emphasises on real world application of design skills and knowledge, and most of our modules are project-based. Together with partners from different industry sectors and disciplines, we develop students’ job- and future-ready skills through real world curricula projects and industrial attachments.

The Centre for Communication Design at Hong Kong Design Institute is an applied research and consultancy hub dedicated to the advancement of knowledge in all areas of graphic communication including typography, information design, advertising, user experience design, illustration, brand communications as well as printing and publishing. It acts as a knowledge exchange platform between staff, students as well as external organisations, tightly integrating practice, research, teaching and outreach activities.
