Applicants are required to produce an initial statement of intent which broadly outlines their intended programme of study usually (but not exclusively) concerning further exploration of a topic within the area of 3D design or visual communication. Informal enquiries are welcomed and may be followed by an advisory interview to assist in the determination of this if required.

Course modules

Modules include: Design practice 1; research for creative design practice 1; advanced practice 2; research for creative design practice 2/3; design practice 3; project or dissertation.

Assessment methods
