Design at Loughborough University - UCAS

Course summary

The Design BA (Hons) degree is a multi-disciplinary course involving the design and experience of products, service systems, and spaces. By choosing this course students have the flexibility to engage in a range of activities across the specialisms of industrial design, experience design and environments design, before finally choosing a specialist pathway. The Design BA is both highly creative and intellectually stimulating, encouraging students to experiment with independent design judgement and creative risk taking. It is a great option for those who would like to further explore industrial, experience, and environments design before specialising. The course aims to educate designers as responsible, persuasive facilitators of change within their chosen specialisation. We inspire our students to develop a wide range of skills and knowledge while nurturing them to become highly successful and responsible designers. Graduates will enter the workplace as empathic, creative instigators of responses to future design challenges.


Years 1 and 2 of this course will provide all students with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to facilitate their education in design through a series of practical and skills-based modules. For more information, please visit the website:
