Course content

Our MA Jewellery course gives design professionals and graduates the opportunity to deepen their skills and experience in the areas of jewellery, and to refine specific areas of research - whether that be wearable, high-fashion, contemporary or decorative jewellery projects.

This course is suited to highly motivated and talented people who wish to work at the forefront of their creative discipline. It's a project-led and studio-based course with close tutorial guidance.

Rigorous research will encourage you to explore a wide range of approaches, from traditional to contemporary influences of art, craft, design and technology.

This course is suited to highly motivated and talented individuals who wish to work at the forefront of their creative discipline, developing and honing in on their creative skills and understanding of jewellery in practice. It's a project-led and studio-based course with close tutorial guidance, and postgraduate students are encouraged to explore their art through different materials and thus have access to a range of studio spaces during their MA course.

Rigorous research will encourage you to explore a wide range of approaches, from traditional to contemporary influences of art, craft, design and technology. As a student on this course, you'll benefit from teaching by leading specialist designers, artists and crafts experts. You'll get to create a range of objects and experiment with different materials and processes, to develop your creative thinking and create bespoke pieces either to be exhibited or displayed on person; the opportunities and ideas are unrestricted, and we encourage our students to enhance their own creative journey through practice and theoretical learning.

Throughout the course, you'll work closely alongside students from other fields such as textiles, ceramics, metalwork and glass. This will enable you to broaden your knowledge and incorporate elements from various disciplines into your own practice, ensuring your final project is tailored to your desired audience and is a reflection of your own personal journey on the MA course.

Our Farnham campus offers extraordinary facilities with extensive workshops and equipment to support your study. It's also home to the Crafts Study Centre - a purpose-built museum, research centre and gallery dedicated to crafts.
