It provides an opportunity to reflect on your professional design career thus far, and potentially develop a new future direction. The programme allows you to be accredited for your past and ongoing professional achievement and learning. The course builds on the established reputation of the Faculty in the field of professional design including fashion, interior, product, furniture and graphic design.
