This Masters level programme is closely linked with the BA(Hons) Surface Pattern Undergraduate programme. On the Integrated MDes programme students have the opportunity to progress to postgraduate study at Level 7 rather than complete at Level 6 with a BA(Hons). Students would be expected to enrol on a four-year (480-credit) programme with the option to leave with a BA(Hons) once 360 credits have been achieved.
The MDes sits in a cluster of courses within the School of Design and Applied Arts with so many cross overs in terms of delivery mode, ethos and facility – this is a great benefit to our students who can thrive on the collaborative, interdisciplinary study that is possible.
The integrated Masters allows those students who are truly pioneering and innovating in the context of a traditional three-year programme to see these discoveries through to a more advanced level. The programme is a challenging and an invigorating venture enabling our most capable and ambitious students to achieve at a higher level.
We know too well how competitive the graduate market is on the other side of University. This MDes programme will give many of our graduates the opportunity to have an edge on many of their peers entering the global market and their competitors at events such as New Designers.
