Description

Advertisement

You are able to bring your own research project or interests to develop through your study. Your research may be focused on past and/or contemporary forms of design, design practice, design ideologies, design research; it may also engage with the contexts in which design is produced and consumed, and with wider contextual fields. The submission for examination can be focused in writing or in practice, in many forms - what constitutes a practice research submission will be part of the ongoing debates on the programme.

Three strands of study will: introduce you to the theories/discourses inherent in design practice; encourage you to review and explore the methods and processes used to research and produce ideas for and about design; encourage you to locate topics and themes for research in particular areas of interest. A major research project will prepare you for further research in industry/professional practice or at MPhil/PhD level.

Requirements

If you do not have a related undergraduate degree we also welcome applicants with significant practical experience in a design-related field or those who have done significant research. We expect some expertise in technologies used to conduct and present research. For those intending to produce practice as research we require skills in the use of equipment used to produce design work (IT and/or manufacture workshop skills). If your first language is not English, you normally need a minimum score of 7.0 in IELTS or equivalent.

Along with your application form please include examples of your work. This should be a written piece of at least 4,000 words, such as an academic dissertation or a research report undertaken in commercial/industrial or other employment. Alternatively, or in addition, you may also send examples of your creative practice: slides (approximately 12), a CD-ROM, or another representation accessible on generally used software; include an index which outlines the concerns and ideas in what you have submitted (200-500 words) and a brief description of individual pieces (including scale, materials and collaborators and object performance where relevant). You should also submit a written statement (approximately 250 words), outlining your reasons for wishing to undertake this degree.

At interview, you present a portfolio of work. We will look for potential in critical and creative thinking. Applicants from outside the UK are encouraged to attend for interview. If you cannot attend in person, we will ask you to send a portfolio (slides or photographs or CD-ROMs accessible on generally used software) of your art/design work with written explanations of selected pieces. Copies of essays in English are also required. If possible we also conduct a telephone interview.
