Jewellery and Silversmithing aims to produce designers who create fresh, exuberant work demonstrating originality and innovation. We encourage students to combine new technologies with traditional techniques in materials including precious or semi-precious metal and gemstones, plastics, wood, paper, stone and textiles. We maintain an outstanding international reputation and an impressive track record of employability with strong industrial links. Our staff regularly exhibit their work and lecture internationally; they are committed to sharing their experiences to assist their graduates to move rapidly into the professional design world. We aim to equip graduates with a realistic understanding of the wider industry including career and future study opportunities. International exchanges and live projects enable you to gain a greater understanding of the industry and craft techniques.
