Working in state-of-the-art studios, you'll gain practical design knowledge through project work and learn from experienced academic staff, practising designers and researchers. During this course you'll develop a range of creative, technical, cognitive and professional skills relevant to employment in design-related built environment professions. This course will encourage you to develop your own approach to the subject and offers opportunities for you to work on individual projects, with smaller tutorial groups, and participate in joint visits and other events. Town study trips, to Europe and further afield have previously been organised each year incorporating the opportunity to use a site in an international context. With a focus on practical design work, you'll complete a series of projects that include elements of work such as reports or short texts.
