Art and Design

This course is organised into 3 clusters: design and new product development; fine art practices; photographic studies and creative imaging. Theoretical and practice based research is interrelated, with research in art and design history and theory interwoven into research in each of the clusters; much of our research exists at the boundaries between these clusters and may draw upon 1 or more of the categories; we welcome enquiries that embrace such interdisciplinary approaches.

Entry requirements

Assessment methods
