Course content

An innovative approach to postgraduate study, which pioneers collaborative practice between all the design disciplines and with graduates from business and technology who want to direct themselves towards a career in the creative industries.

Students working within their own area of expertise will contribute to an interdisciplinary team, working in the specific subject area of public realm.

The course is a direct response to the Cox Review, a report commissioned by the government that stated, for the UK to continue to prosper, it must place creativity, design and innovation at the top of it's agenda in order to give industry the necessary competitive edge.

The course work featured demonstrates how being part of a supportive creative community of graduates from different design disciplines gives students the opportunity to experiment, to explore new creative territories and to produce practical ideas that in many cases have been commissioned and implemented by Preston City Council.
