At Represent, our University Outreach Programme is dedicated to enriching the journey of 2nd and 3rd year graphic design students. We're here to offer a helping hand, giving them the insights and skills they need to step confidently into the creative industries.

Our engagement not only enriches the student experience but also extends to collaborating with tutors. By sharing practical knowledge and confidence-boosting strategies, we're dedicated to equipping students with the tools they need for a successful and thriving career ahead.

We've had the privilege of collaborating with prestigious institutions including Bath Spa University, Camberwell, Kingston University, University of Brighton, Ravensbourne, St. Martins, LCC, Manchester Metropolitan University, Norwich University of The Arts, and the RCA. Our programme has consistently received high praise from both students and tutors for its significant impact and value.

James from Represent has been a great source of practical advice and industry-focused insights for the Graphic Design students at the University of Brighton. Represent have provided engaging professional practice talks, portfolio reviews, and participated in panel discussions – showing their commitment and dedication to fostering emerging graphic designers.

Represent have been amazingly supportive of the BA Graphic Design at Kingston over the years. Their generosity of industry insight is now a valuable part of our final year programme. As well as collaborating with us on projects exploring diversity in design, their portfolio and design pathways sessions boost confidence and provide contemporary advice for our students right when they need it most. Whether online or on-campus sessions, James and Mike's energy and expertise always receives really positive feedback. Our students go on to do exceptionally well in the industry - most certainly because of Represent’s advice and input. They are our favourites!
