Degree and/or experience:
- A good degree (2.2 or above) in a design-related subject. In exceptional circumstances, ie where an applicant has several years experience working in a design industry, those with non-design degrees will be considered. Applicants need to show evidence of a portfolio and most will be invited for interview.
English Language Requirement:
- IELTS 6.5 overall and 6.0 in writing.
During Semester 1, the projects set for the Preliminary Design module provide an opportunity for students returning to education to take stock of their position, evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and identify ambitions for future study. Lecture courses in Technology and Material Practices, Critical Readings and Research Methods run in parallel.
In Semester 2, you consolidate and extend the priorities, ideas and strategies established in the preliminary design. Lecture series in Technology and Critical Readings continue. A proposal for the final research project is developed and submitted, which then takes up the whole of Semester 3.
The course explores both the intellectual idea and the spatial language of interior environments. Students develop new skills while extending existing design practices to precisely articulate spatial design proposals.
We offer at least one study trip each year. It might be related to the design studio and/or a trip that offers you direct exposure to and experience of some of the most contemporary spatial design projects in Britain and Europe.
