Course summary

Our BA (Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing (with Integrated International Foundation Year and Professional Practice Year) is a five year degree programme, specifically designed to provide international students with the English language and creative skills before they embark on year one of a degree. Your fourth academic year would then include a year in industry placement. Gain inspiration from Farnham’s World Craft Town status and invaluable insight from UCAs team of craft experts as you work with metals, ceramics, glass, and wood on our BA (Hons) Jewellery & Silversmithing degree course. This course embraces the traditions of craftsmanship and a forward-thinking approach to designing and making, and as you learn through making, you’ll gain the knowledge and courage to take risks and to redefine approaches to the subject. Working in a stimulating creative environment where innovation and excellence are the ambition, you’ll develop your own interests and distinctive creative direction within a supportive academic framework. You’ll have access to a range of specialist facilities and benefit from our industry links, including Tatty Devine and the British Art Medal Society. You’ll also take part in a range of live competitions and projects as you build your professional network to take with you into an exciting career.
