Course summary

Our programme aims to produce designers who create fresh, exuberant work demonstrating originality and innovation. We encourage students to combine new technologies with traditional techniques in materials including precious or semi-precious metal and gemstones, plastics, wood, paper, stone and textiles. We maintain an outstanding international reputation and an impressive track record of employability with strong industrial links. Our staff regularly exhibit their work and lecture internationally; they are committed to sharing their experience to assist students to move rapidly into the professional design world. We aim to equip graduates with a realistic understanding of the wider industry including career and future study opportunities. International exchanges and live projects enable you to gain a greater understanding of a range of industrial and craft production approaches. Integrated with your practical studio work, Design and Screen Cultures courses provide a contextual and theoretical understanding of the holistic nature of contemporary design. We have close ties with industry professional bodies, including Edinburgh’s Scottish Goldsmiths Trust and London Goldsmiths Company who annually support our final year students with precious metal awards and sponsorship. These bodies also run, or support, educational events, training, mentoring, competitions and exhibitions that we participate in fully. “Everything seems to have come together for me, each opportunity inspiring or leading onto the next. The summer costume jewellery internship led onto a costume jewellery workshop in Germany, which inspired the theme for my dissertation that subsequently inspired me to apply for a job with Swarvoski. I felt ready to take that next step in to the working world after graduation and hope that the snowball effect of great opportunities is to continue.” **Laura Templeton, graduate**
