This programme aims to promote an understanding of the complexity and interconnections inherent in sustainable design and to cultivate innovative design thinking.
You will be provided with the knowledge, skills and experience to assess the environmental and social impacts associated with products, services and systems and successfully implement strategies that reduce these impacts, whilst promoting and enhancing innovation.
By studying this programme you will be joining a vibrant community, benefitting from the cutting edge, novel and emergent ideas and strategies developed and taught by world-leading researchers from the Sustainable Design Research Group, based within the School.
On each route, students study five compulsory modules, two of which are route-specific. The three compulsory modules common to all programmes are:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A first or 2:1 level degree in a relevant discipline, or the international equivalent of these UK qualifications. A lower level qualification with appropriate industrial experience may also be considered. A design or engineering background is not essential.
We encourage applicants from a wide range of disciplines who have an interest in innovative sustainable design and the desire to think differently about how to achieve it.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
