About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

This course has been designed to build on existing design related experience and help further develop and support students to fulfil their ambitions and function professionally in the design arena.

On the top up course, you will enhance your passion for high level ideas generation in your chosen pathway and will develop the links between technology and the user. The course also helps you undertake the professional networking possibilities communicating with leading industries in your field to set the fundamental foundations needed to ‘go it alone’ or as part of a team when you graduate.

The programme is designed to allow you to work more independently whilst exploring your chosen pathway with the aim of progressing into employment or further study at MA level. You will be asked to keep a portfolio of work to track your development as a designer towards the goals you set for yourself in consultation with your personal tutor. We aim to train you to take responsibility for your own learning and career development, to be able to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and conduct a skills audit to develop a critical practice. As a member of the team you will undertake external and internal work experience in our 'design studio' as part of a professional studio practice based environment.

You will study a range of core modules, including:
• Personal Project
• Honours Project
• External Project
• Contextual Studies - Design Futures

Assessment methods

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
