Entry requirements

A UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1) degree

Your degree should be in a creative or technical discipline (e.g. product design, industrial design, textile design, jewellery design, engineering, architecture, computer science etc.), although applicants with other qualifications or relevant professional experience will also be considered.

Written work - Please provide a short (500 word) story about you and your interest in Product Design. Make it as personal as you want or use your imagination! We want to see how you write about the world.

You will need to upload a portfolio of design/technology work. We consider all creative work in the context of design and portfolios will almost always include some (but not necessarily all) of the following:

  • contextual research,
  • visual mapping techniques,
  • sketching,
  • drawing,
  • CAD rendering,
  • model making,
  • physical/digital prototypes,
  • finished artefacts and any other design related work.
