Course summary

Pursue innovation, challenge conventions and push the boundaries of the discipline with this creative course. Individuality is fundamental to your creative development, personal philosophy and direction. The School is uniquely positioned in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, enabling you to be fully immersed in the industry from the first day of your studies. You will be encouraged to create innovative designs to a high standard and have the chance to enter competitions and awards on this internationally respected jewellery design course. In your first year of study, the focus is on developing traditional processes followed by experimental materials investigation, allowing you to enter the second year with a range of skills and the confidence to explore various optional topics, and live and collaborative projects. In the final year, you will be guided by your own inspiration and supported by highly experienced tutors. You will also benefit from our rolling programme of Artists in Residence. While studying on this course you will have the opportunity to gain commercial experience and develop key employability skills. There are various opportunities to promote your work to an external audience, through participation in live projects, competitions and real-life briefs throughout the programme. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year.
