Year 1

In the first year, core study modules in studio practice aim to develop material-specific skills and introduce fundamental ideas of design and craft.

Through four material areas (wood, metal, ceramics, polymers and composites) students are introduced to the processes and techniques of design and making. This is followed by a short period of self-directed study or a design project.

Concept development, context and the surrounding discussion on design and craft are led by overarching themes and project briefs increasing in depth of critical engagement, for example:

  • culture of making – traditions
  • consumption – resources and environment
  • technology – materials and performance
  • object and context – body, space and site.
  • Studio practice is integrated with a creative enquiry module introducing research methods in creative practice and delivering skills in visual communication, design development (drawing, representation, studio techniques such as technical drawing, model making, digital image and layout skills).

The first year programme is also supported by modules in professional practice and historical and critical studies.

Year 2

In year 2, students focus on specialisation and choice in materials and processes progressing their individual practice through a combination of research-led, issue-driven and live projects.

The aim is to develop advanced and in-depth knowledge from the materials base connecting historical and traditional techniques and processes to contemporary culture and innovation. Structured projects combined with live and research-led projects contribute to the formulation of personal development plans and research questions for the self-directed study and independent project work in year 3. Studio practice is supported by modules in professional practice and historical and critical studies. Students also have the opportunity to take a 20-credit option from across the College of Arts and Humanities.

Students wishing to progress onto the four-year MDes programme must gain a minimum 60% grade overall in the second year.

In year 2 you have the opportunity to apply for a student exchange to Nagoya University and Seoul National University.

Year 3 / Final Year

Year 3 supports the development and management of independent learning.

You will develop a major independent body of work in 3D design and craft, supported by a rigorous body of creative enquiry research, a professional practice portfolio and a historical and critical studies dissertation.
