Course content

The course embraces all facets of ceramic work: Craft and Design; Functional or Decorative; One-off or Mass Production; Sculptural and Architectural. Courses in the Department of Design are rooted in Creative Thinking (innovative idea generation and making). You get to see the best of contemporary work and the most influential historical work. Final year study is tailored to individual student interests and professional opportunity. Tutors have both national and international profiles and are well known for their innovative approach to the discipline.

Rooted in making, the course offers a distinctive blend of practice and theory, with the theoretical components underpinning and informing the practical components of the course. The fundamental philosophy of the course is providing the opportunity for students to explore and realise their individual aspirations and potential; creating a framework for students to develop the skills necessary for a career in professional practice. Through discussion with course supervisors, students are able to form a uniquely individual, tailor made programme of study.
