Course Summary

Design isn’t just a way of making and doing; it’s a way of understanding and engaging with the world.**Why study BA Design at Goldsmiths?**- The BA Design degree enables you to think imaginatively about the possibilities of design. Not just what design is; but what it might be. You’ll discover how design affects the environment as a whole, as you investigate its role within society and culture.

These projects allow you to develop your ideas and present to design professionals, gaining valuable experience and insight.- In your second year, you’ll have the chance to do a placement. Past placement hosts have included Selfridges and Alexander McQueen.- Our graduates have gone on to work for top London design consultancies and major international brands including Dyson, LEGO, Google and Burberry. Many have also gone on to set up their own design studios.- Students and graduates have also been successful in national and international competitions, winning awards including the New Designer of the Year Award, RSA Design Directions Award, the Design Museum’s ‘Design Mart’ and NESTA’s Creative Pioneer Programme.Please note the BA Design only accepts applications for first year entry.
