    graphic design degree from England or Ireland?

    I am interested in pursuing a second undergraduate degree in Graphic Design from a university in Europe. I was wondering if anyone here had an opinion on which are the best graphic design programs in the United Kingdom?

    Check out the graphics BAs at the various colleges of The London Institute.

    London College of Printing
    Central St Martins
    Camberwell College
    Chelsea College

    Each of these courses have their own strengths, personality and reuptation. Fwiw, all the colleges are regarded as being amngst the best in their field.

    Ravensbourne, Kingston and Manchester Metro also spring to mind, though I can't vouch solidly for the state of the courses today. They each had a good reputation when last I noticed such things (which is a few years ago).

    Fwiw, remember that the course prospectuses are basically adverts and are unlikely to give a 'warts and all' representation of how the course is being handled and if there are any significant problems to bear in mind when wittling down the list.
    *Always* talk the students on the courses that you shortlist. There's no substitute for 'on the ground' feedback directly from those studying on the course.

    Whichever one you settle on and whereever it is- good luck.
