Course summary

We’re inspiring a new generation of ‘designers and makers’. Develop your individual visual language, and learn how to effectively navigate the innovative technological demands of a competitive global marketplace. Our ambition is to help our students become 21st century designers and creative thinkers, highly prized by the creative industries that contribute considerably to economic growth. If this is your ambition too, you’ve come to the right university. This course provides a professional environment, which invites students to engage with innovative approaches to design, integrating design craft within an increasingly digital landscape. You will study in a climate of fast-paced and challenging industry-based projects aimed at developing creative responses. Ultimately, the course aims to nurture independent designers who are strongly motivated to develop their own individual identity. Course activities are predominately studio-based, and skills workshops strongly underpin practicebased make-and-manufacture activities. Key lectures and seminars support learning, and speakers from industry and field trips to Paris and London provide industry relevance to theory and practice-based modules. Your learning will be supported within a setting that promotes critical intellectual growth, while provoking creative challenges and experiences, embracing fashion design as a viable career pathway.
