This studio and workshop-based course provides the opportunity to learn through experience. The programme is broad and offers the opportunity to work in art, craft and design-based areas. In encouraging experimentation, the course celebrates combining materials and processes to create innovative ideas and outcomes. You will experience new challenges and explore new concepts. Through learning processes and working with a wide range of materials you will develop a broad skill base. You will be helped to apply these to your own projects, which will give you a distinct and professional body of work that enables you to become a creative professional. Your studies will be underpinned by historical, cultural and theoretical research, as well as gaining a working understanding of the implications of making in contemporary contexts. The course tutors have many industry links and the course offers opportunities to engage in work placements and live projects in collaboration with regional and national organisations including businesses, galleries and schools. The work of our students is featured in external exhibitions each year, providing graduates with a unique experience, often leading to exciting opportunities. The course provides for the development of technical skills in the workshops, but also for the development of a wide range of transferable skills such as critical and strategic thinking, time and project management, literary and research skills, information management, presentation, promotion and marketing and process materials. The course is intended to enable students to make informed choices based on sound information and critical judgement. Students are encouraged to express their ideas and to develop analytical ability through lectures, seminar, tutorials, discussions and gallery visits. Students gain understanding of their work in historical, current and professional contexts as well in relation to current debate.


The course has a modular structure taught over three years. All modules are compulsory and must be passed in order to progress to the next level.
