Excellence in the School of Design is more than just reliance on a strong tradition of creativity in craft and studio-based practice.
Here, we work across the varying disciplines within the School to develop methods and approaches to people and culture that equip our students to design excellence into our lives.
Through a process of collaboration, we encourage students to build with us a collective philosophy of what design is and what it might become.
We encourage our designers to create visions and identities that are both innovative and sustainable. We are educating not only problem-solvers but also opportunity-seekers. Our students will become the designers/thinkers/makers who will positively shape the world we inhabit.
The study of Professional Practice and Context is embedded in all programmes.
