BA Design

BA Design
Our unique degree offers a stimulating and engaging learning experience with opportunities for projects that directly engage with real world problems.

Designers increasingly need to be able to create things that go beyond individual products and services and address the cultural and social challenges the world now faces. BA Design is one of a handful of degrees to recognise this change and to produce a new kind of designer, able to examine complex problems and propose future focussed solutions that consider the interplay between products, people and places

Taught by world-leading experts, the course provides students with the necessary design-led skills and experience to work in the fast moving creative and digital industries and respond to the challenges of an increasingly complex future world.

Studio-based practical projects and real world briefs enable you to apply design and creative thinking in response to concrete issues, developing your abilities in both problem-finding and problem-solving.
