Course summary

Course summary

  • Master traditional, new and technological skills in state-of-the-art studios.
  • Work with practising designers who bring their experience and networks to the course.
  • Experience employability-driven learning through applied real-world projects.
  • Build a unique portfolio to prepare for a career in design.

If you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) courses, or you’d like extra preparation before starting degree-level study, we recommend you join the foundation year – which has been designed to encourage exploration and experimentation.

Through experimentation with materials, processes, technologies, design and creative thinking, this course will develop your professional, practical and intellectual skills and prepare you for a successful career. You’ll gain the confidence and experience required to utilise new technologies in the pursuit of innovative and creative solutions.

How you learn

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

You'll learn through critical enquiry and exploration of ideas, materials and design processes. You'll work with external partners and have the opportunity to apply for placements. The distinctive portfolio of work that you'll create will demonstrate your unique strengths to prospective employers. In the first ‘induction’ module you’ll learn to work confidently and creatively with a wide range of different materials. In the second ‘project’ module you’ll be taught by tutors from the BA (Hons) course supported by foundation tutors.
