Through intensive and varied project work, you learn how to generate and produce original designs for a wide range of jewellery, tableware and personal accessories. The course supports a wide variety of approaches from one-off, highly crafted pieces to mass produced items. As well as learning about jewellery and metalwork and how this relates to other craft and design disciplines, you learn how to specialise. Members of the teaching team have individual specialisms and these form key areas of study on the course. You may be able to study abroad as part of the Erasmus programme. During the course you have the opportunity to enter national design competitions, complete live projects and exhibit your work in professional shows. You can also attend field trips to galleries, exhibitions and studios in the UK and Europe.
