Design (Jewellery and Metalwork)

Students study jewellery and metalwork at an advanced level and develop their talents for designing and making. They will be challenged to think differently about design and creatively push the boundaries of their discipline whilst developing the skills needed to become an imaginative and versatile designer who can operate independently or as a member of a team. Studies are project led and develop through researching, designing, producing and exhibiting work. Students' projects are supported by lecturers who are specialists in this varied and diverse subject area. Students develop skills and aspirations to undertake lead roles in the wide area of jewellery and metalwork design and production; students give their design understanding the edge by applying the findings of specialist research conducted by staff; work on live research and practice based projects that may be undertaken in conjunction with user communities, international and regional business; if available, students take advantage of industrial sponsorship schemes.

Entry requirements

Normally a 2.2 degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline or significant relevant experience; appropriate study plans, including an indication of possible project topics and clear, appropriate and realistic learning aims; a high level of creative ability, as evidenced by a portfolio of work; ability to discuss design issues critically and confidently. If English is not the students first language, typically an IELTS 6.0 score with a minimum of 6.0 in writing and 5.5 in all other skills or equivalent. For students whose English language skills are currently below IELTS 6.0 we recommend they consider a Sheffield Hallam University pre-sessional English course which will enable them to achieve an equivalent English score.
