Course content

This programme provides an opportunity for students to develop the full potential of a practice-based project proposal either as research or professional preparation by combining traditional and contemporary media in their chosen area of interest.

Based on a balance between theory and practice, our School offers students a wide range of specialist areas and facilities in jewellery design and accessories, textiles, fine art, photography, 3D design and ceramics. The latter provides extensive facilities including an anagama kiln.

The programme encourages innovation in addition to the refinement of individual skills and practice.

Once the online application is completed, we will ask for a Project Proposal Form to be completed. The project proposal is requested as part of the initial assessment process and can only be accepted after you have applied via the Postgraduate Application Portal.
