International Partnerships

Past and Current International Programmes and Partnerships

INBOUND STUDENTS:The Department of Graphic Design is committed to building networks and partnerships with international students and their home institutions. As such, we welcome applications for our Communication Design programme from students abroad, for both the full three-year degree programme, or as part of a six month international exchange via ISEP (the International Student Exchange Program). For more information on our full programme see here (link to brochure). For more information on student exchanges see here:Internationalisation_Web.pdf.

OUTBOUND STUDENTS:The Department of Graphic Design and ISEP also offer exchange opportunities for current UJ Graphic Design students, to a network of affiliated Colleges and Universities in over 50 countries worldwide. The exchange programme covers the full costs of an academic term for selected students, including tuition, housing and meals. Read more about our students experiences below.
