This is where your Graphic Design skills come together.

The Advanced Diploma is regarded as being ‘industry-ready’ and the goal of this course is to develop a stunning portfolio which culminates in the end-of-year grad show. Our grad show is the highlight of the year and is attended by industry stakeholders, many of whom are alumni who are now leading the industry.

The Advanced Diploma course splits into two streams - User Experience Design and Illustration. This means that although everyone does the common core units there is the opportunity to specialise in electives.
Our industry consultation outlines the demand for illustrative design as well as a more User Experience/ User Interface approach.Follow your passionand NMT's course will help you to achieve yourbest.

Once again at this level we integrate with live briefs with real clients. An example of the high standard of work our students produce is our involvement with the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) where our students have won international awards and our participation in Award School. All students become members of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA), the industry’s leading body.

We also host the annual AGDA folio review where feedback is received from industry members in how to best structure your portfolio.
In addition to this we conduct industry visits and host guest speakers who shed light on the latest trends in our industry.
