University of the Arts London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts is a practice-led, dynamic and exploratory course examining the relationship between people and experiences through experimental technologies and processes. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL). Students are encouraged to actively play as they pursue projects through a core methodology of research, testing and iterative prototyping. This is a practice-led course that explores the communicative potential of physical experience. Focusing on the relationships between people, designed objects and experiences, students will work with interaction, narrative and moving image, alongside processes such as design prototyping, film-making, coding and physical computing. You will develop a personal perspective from which to answer complex design problems, embracing approaches such as critical design and exploring design for social change.
What can you expect?
Working within the philosophy of 'high-tech, low-tech and no-tech', students are encouraged to pursue projects that put people at the centre of their design and arts practice. As well as developing personal work, students have the opportunity to regularly collaborate with local communities on long-term human-centred projects. Our specialist studios are constructed as a designer’s playground that will nurture and encourage creativity and learning, through the formation of a community of practice. There is also access to traditional media such as letterpress, printmaking and photography.Drawing on a tradition of dynamism, exploration, prototyping and experimentation, students on BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts are taught that the only boundaries are those set by the imagination and that creative ideas hold sway over technology. Students on the course understand that design impacts the world at large and that they have a responsibility for the wider issues of sustainability and social inclusiveness
