Course content

The student is supported by staff input through a series of design activities during Semester 1 that are designed to identify an area or interest that can then be fully explored through the following two semesters. Complementary to the design modules are two research modules that provide theoretical underpinning, one being studied during Semester 1, the other during Semester 2. Semester 2 provides the opportunity to explore issues through a dynamic research experience that again is defined and structured by the individual. Through a series of self-arranged visits, the student is able to undertake further exploration directly within the context of their chosen area. The final semester of studies provides the individual with the opportunity to bring together all that has been developed and researched through the preceding two semesters of study. A final major design activity and dissertation are undertaken and presented at an end of year show.
