Overview of the programme
Contemporary life is defined and fashioned by design: this course will support you to enrich and evolve your skills.
As your creative identity matures, this course will allow you to hone your talent through the application of current and traditional methods, reflective approaches and attitudes as you advance as an effective artistic practitioner.
The course provides an opportunity to work with greater sophistication in the concepts and research that underpins contemporary design. Issues of sustainability, rapid changes in economic forces and ethical matters can influence and inform your design thinking. It can also create a foundation for research activity, from which some students go on to take PhD studies.
You will work alongside other artists and designers from a variety of disciplines. The learning is “situation based” – meaning your experience is not dictated by materials or subject titles, but the context in which your work is developing, both in terms of how the research informs your designs and how the work you do informs the need for future development. You will also have the opportunity to exhibit work and to take part in live commissions as opportunity allows.
