Subject

Design

Design for Exhibition and Museums specialises in storytelling, whether for a brand, a collection or an idea. Projects integrate aspects of graphic, spatial and interactive design. Students work on creative briefs, including designs for commercial projects such as trade stands and brand experiences, as well as exhibition projects for visitor attractions, museums and theme parks. Students can explore how to construct a narrative that acts as an interpretive bridge between the client and the audience. The outcome is the creation of interactive spaces that communicate messages in a memorable and innovative manner. The course is shaped by long-established links with the exhibitions industry, museums and heritage organisations.

Modules

The first year focuses on three-dimensional design skills and aims to ensure students become increasingly aware of the social and contextual factors of design production, in addition to gaining a thorough introduction to the importance of visual literacy and spatial awareness. In the studio, students can develop drawing and modelling techniques, as well as the ability to address communication and spatial problems creatively.

In the second year, the focus is solely on exhibition briefs and students can explore how narrative, multi-media and interactive design can enhance visitor experiences. There is also the opportunity to gain practical work experience through optional placements in year two.

The final year concentrates on areas of personal interest with opportunities to develop briefs for exhibition projects, culminating in a final showcase exhibition. Additionally, the course offers live projects and the opportunity for collaborations with established practices and museums, as well as feedback from practising designers in our Industry Forum in the final year.

Assessment methods

The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to work in a growing, creative sector where we are a world leader? Welcome to design! The UK has a proud reputation as a centre of design excellence, and last year just over 14,000 design degrees were awarded. At the moment, the jobs market looks a little better for fashion and textile designers, and not as good for multimedia or interactive designers — but that may change by the time you graduate. In general, design graduates are more likely than most to start their career in London, although that also varies by subject — last year fashion designers often found jobs in the North West, graphic designers in the South West, illustrators in the South West, East Anglia and Midlands, textile designers in the Midlands and the North West, and visual designers in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Midlands. Design is also a good degree for people who want to work for a small business - more than half of graduates start at a small employer.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
