Aims/Description: This unit is the first in a sequence of three studio based design modules. It allows students to develop a design project. The development of advanced design skills is based on a `studio' system, with different tutors setting agendas and projects that encompass a diverse range of themes. Students choose to follow one studio from a range that are offered. Specific projects vary on an annual basis, but are chosen to develop students skills in design, along with an integrated understanding of technological, environmental and cultural issues. The different studios each have their own teaching patterns and assessment methods.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
