Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This well-established course is premised on the notion that making is central to creativity and how creativity manifests in society, culture, economy and the environment.

You will explore the value of made objects, products and artefacts in the world and the evolving role that making performs in engaging with the contexts of our time.

Embracing a diverse approach across the spectrum of three-dimensional creative practice, the course offers you a varied and challenging learning experience that enables you to develop an individual approach to 3D design and craft.

Studies cover a comprehensive range of practices including ceramics, jewellery, products and furniture. You’ll have access to specialist workshops in wood, metals, ceramics, polymers and digital technology.

You can choose to study for a three-year BA(Hons) or a four-year MDes, equivalent to a masters.
