- We encourage you to use the design projects and option modules to tailor your studies to your own interests.
- Our approach is multi-disciplinary so you will have access to a wide range of leading experts and academics in areas ranging from sustainable design, human rights, political communications and campaigning to organisational and people management, leadership and innovation.
