On December 7, 2015 the Centre for Graphic Communication at SBCS’ Trincity Campus hosted one of its biannual Standards Verification visits from Pearson representative, Ms. Abigail Smith.

 

Director of Creative Industries and Principal Standards Verifier for Creative Skills at Pearson UK, Ms. Smith conducted a review of the BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Graphic Design offered by Pearson.

 

Providing positive feedback as she met with students and administration, Ms. Smith noted that the delivery of the HND programme maintained a high standard over the years and has continued to see upward progress.

 

Citing academic support from lecturers, student projects, institutional policies among other elements as benchmarks of quality, she highlighted SBCS’ role in innovation and best practices in higher education.

 

As the equivalent to the first two years of a Bachelors Honours Degree, the HND in Graphic Design is one of six specialist HND qualifications offered by SBCS, in addition to other areas such as Computing, Media, Business, Construction and Engineering.

 

Over the past decade SBCS has continued to offer internationally recognized and industry-relevant education through HNDs to meet both local and foreign demands.
