Lowestoft Campus


Three Years



BA (Hons) Design is a skills based course that provides the exciting opportunity to develop creative, technical and cognitive design capabilities. Theory and practice are inextricably linked. The ‘hands on’ approach to processes and materials is delivered via a broad inter-disciplinary curriculum in four subject specialist areas: ceramics, 3D design, graphics and textiles.

The course ethos is one of integration between traditional and digital processes to produce innovative design work.
Problem solving is encountered through a range of project briefs aimed at different target audiences covering a broad subject context.

In the first year, you will study all four of the subject specialist areas and engage in identifying opportunities for inter-disciplinary working. In the second year, you will be encouraged to follow an inter-disciplinary approach, or may choose to work in one subject specialism. In the third year you can define your own design focus.

The professional and transferable skills acquired throughout the course produce versatile and resourceful design practitioners with a sound knowledge of and understanding in the key principles of design, decision making, project development and time management.

This unique course is delivered in small, friendly and supportive peer groups and there is a strong emphasis placed on providing pastoral support for you.
