Career Opportunities

As well as setting up their own designer/maker businesses in areas such as ceramics, jewellery, glass and furniture, students develop high-level communications skills that allow them to gain employment in a variety of craft and design-related professions such as product design, museum and curatorial practice, design consultancy and management, and art education. Graduates from workshop-based design degrees are also increasingly sought after in a variety of non-design-related industries because of their highly practical problem-solving abilities.

Course Progression

Students are ideally suited to progress onto postgraduate study in Art and Design specialisms, Design Management and Marketing, and Curatorial Practice, as well as in the arts and wellbeing sectors such as as Art Therapy. The educational sector can be accessed through a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). Graduates may also wish to progress onto other non-design-related postgraduate courses.
