Designing luxury furniture, bespoke one-off items, or products for industrial design and commercialisation.

Semester courses in product design combine a mix of applied manual, technical and digital design skills in order to improve and develop creative talent in design processes, methods, and final product realisation.

Aimed at participants with at least one-year previous undergraduate study in product design, or similar field, these short courses cover key subjects in design, trends, materials, and 3D modelling, as well as contemporary insights in the design process for example, the sociology of design, communicating design, and design anthropology; researching and developing innovative ideas that match the needs and requirements of a client brief, or for the final product user in contemporary design proposals.

Study abroad courses provide an opportunity to see the world, experience new cultures, learn a new language, visit neighbouring countries, and make new lifelong friends.
