The degree celebrates the combination of creative thinking and practical application necessary to successfully perform many of the cross-disciplinary functions in the Film & TV industry. Such an industry needs set designers to realise the creative vision of the director. This MDes four-year degree is for people who are fascinated by the processes of visualising, creating and building film environments and sets; it is for people who want to design and make those environments and for those students who would like to develop their practice into the commercial world. The programme concerns itself with turning narrative and screenplay ideas into film sets, through carefully planned practical modules and studying how creative enterprise works. The MDes gives the student an additional year of study at postgraduate level that can be funded through the student loan, resulting in the award of an MDes upon successful completion.
