“What is it like being a student of the program? Probably the first word that comes to my mind is: hardworking. I mean it's fun, I love the atmosphere, I like spending time at the university but at the same time, I have to work hard because it's not something that can be taken easily, it's not easy-breezy. I have already experienced what it's like to be a student of Metropolitan during my Graphic design BA course and how the community is great and inspiring, the teachers are great professionals for someone who is creative, and it’s just perfect. However the graphic design MA is another step towards the "more professionals tone", it's just another level of seriousness which requires a right amount of handwork and a little bit more.

There are many opportunities to exhibit and test my abilities, competitions and such. We also have fun, for sure, the students usually end the day together in a café, bar, still talking about ideas or just chilling.”
Barbara Zsidek, student of our Graphic Design MA program from Hungary

“A graphic designer is responsible for the message, also for its artistic and aesthetic quality. Moreover, a graphic designer should count on social and ecological factors as well. How does the message affect us? What kind of material is needed for a good “package”? What impact will it have on the environment? We aim to introduce our students to the (re)interpreted workshop of the always experimenting graphics, where – alloying the traditional and modern image creation techniques – we will be able to change the world.”
