¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

Students applying for the Scheme may choose between four design disciplines:

- BA(Hons) in Advertising Design.

- BA(Hons) in Communication Design.

- BA(Hons) in Environment and Interior Design.

- BA(Hons) in Product Design.

The BA(Hons) Scheme in Design offers students a design education that is attuned to social trends and is sensitive to change. The School encourages students to think critically, learn independently and in teams, and experiment with dynamic, multilayered design processes that encourage them to weave culture and industry strands into appropriate social narratives.

The School also encourages the development of creative thinking through independent learning, experimentation with creative and contextual research processes and the questioning of existing design paradigms. The programme provides students with opportunities to participate in international collaborative projects and enroll on student exchange programmes. The School’s close relationship with the design industry allows students to engage in real world design projects with input from the industry, as well as summer industrial internships.

The BA(Hons) Scheme in Design is normally undertaken over 4 years of full-time study.

  • Year 1 introduces students to their chosen disciplines and enthuses them about their study through subjects such as the Freshman Seminar. The year leads students to learn while providing a broadly based foundation in common design skills and thinking within a design discipline.
  • Year 2 provides students with the opportunity to investigate the characteristics of the discipline they choose and explore their interests and develop their strengths.
  • Year 3 allows the study path to be consolidated in Design Studios and enriched by continued Discipline Specific Subjects and co-operation with other students in multidisciplinary common Compulsory Subjects.
  • Year 4, the final year, develops students’ critical ability in design appreciation, the different perspectives of design thinking, and their own execution processes. They are increasingly allowed to negotiate project outcomes, while developing a personal portfolio of a professional standard. This year encourages personal development. Graduates are prepared for employment or for postgraduate studies.


The core subjects of the issue-based design studio address contemporary aspects of human existence and the ambition to project desirable futures. Mindful of the cultural implications of technology, projects are developed with the user at the centre and a critical appreciation of social trends, reflecting a humanistic teaching and learning mode running across the scheme’s four design disciplines.


The total credit requirement for graduation is 124, including 30 credits of General University Requirements Subjects, 20 credits of common Compulsory Subjects and 74 credits of Discipline-Specific Subjects and Electives.
