Everywhere you turn, virtually everything you use, the things you own, the things you drive, things you covet; a designer has had his or her hands on it. Why are some products or vehicles so much more desirable, innovative and successful than others? You have your suspicions, because you are an ideas person with a passion for problem solving and innovation, and you would love to put those ideas into practice - whatever the product - mobile phones, watches, scooters, headphones, sunglasses, mascara wands, perfume bottles, fitness monitors, sustainable packaging, sports trainers.The list is endless.
This award winning course is just what you have been seeking. Its aim is to help you to become a professional designer capable of realising your creative design ideas as an employee or through your own creative enterprise. You will develop the technical know-how to identify problems, develop ideas both physically and digitally and produce finalised designs for mass production. The course has a vocational emphasis based on long established industry links, which results in valuable exposure to live commercial projects, and which underpins an excellent graduate career record. In addition the course has a global presence through its unique association with INDEX: Design to Improve Life
The broad nature of the course, coupled with experience gained in industry, results in high graduate employment within a wide range of manufacturing or consultancy organisations. Outside the practice of design itself, design management, product management and marketing management positions are also available to you. Recent employers of our graduates include Antler, Black and Decker, Kenwood, Adidas, Dyson, Johnson&Johnson and Lego. Alternatively, the course team and the University's new 3M Buckley Innovation Centre (BIC) can support you to realise the true commercial value of your 'patented' designs through a creative enterprise start-up.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
