The course is taught at the Faculty of Art Design & Architecture, one of the leading art and design institutions in Europe. Our teaching is guided by two principles: that our students learn by the process of making; and that students are critical practitioners who contribute to the development of the subject areas.
Many of the staff in the Faculty are current practitioners and have extensive experience and professional links, helping you to develop your skills, networks and gain access to industry contacts.
