Prepare for entry into British Columbia's growing creative economy with one of UFV's hands-on programs in Graphic and Digital Design. Choose from the Graphic and Digital Design Diploma or the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Graphic and Digital Design Major, Minor or Extended Minor programs.
Attend one of our portfolio info nights for an introduction to the creative industry and UFV's Graphic + Digital Design programs. Instructors, students, and grads share real-world experiences, provide feedback and advice on building a strong entrance portfolio, answer questions, and share experiences. Attendance is strongly encouraged.
Please follow the portfolio guidelines carefully and submit all the required items via Slideroom.
If you are applying to the Graphic and Digital Design major in the BFA and already have some post-secondary credit or have completed the Graphic and Digital Design diploma, you may be eligible for entrance without a portfolio. Please review the BFA entrance requirements in the Academic Calendar.
