Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The programme is aimed at aspiring furniture designer-makers and provides a work-related Honours top-up progression route for holders of a Foundation Degree or HND in Furniture Design and Make. The programme consists of two key elements focussing on independent and industry-linked projects. The independent projects are linked together to provide a holistic experience, first establishing a self-initiated brief through a significant written research project and directly linking this with a major design and make project. Building on the reputation of the Rycotewood Furniture Centre and its industry links a combination of live projects, study visits and guest speakers will support the development of design, craft, business and enterprise skills relevant to furniture designer makers.
