Manchester Metropolitan University
This course is studio-centred, integrating both design and craft practice where social responsibility, integrity and professional practice are placed at the heart of MA study. We encourage active research defined by hands-on project work with community, in close partnership with local councils, organisations and communities beyond Manchester School of Art, highlighting how this network supports and informs our design and craft practice. This route calls students to question the ways in which, designers cooperate, collaborate and contribute to society. Exploration of both hands-on and digital innovation is encouraged in the development of design, making and communication practices. There is access to an extensive range of material and CAD/CAM workshop facilities and opportunities to experience a diverse range of creative cultures, including related design and craft disciplines such as Graphic and Fashion Design.
You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may be admitted if you can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard. In addition, you may also need to submit a digital portfolio.
