Common Design Programme

Are you keen on pursuing an education in design, but unsure which discipline to specialise in? With our newly launched Common Design Programme (CDP), gain foundational knowledge and a better understanding of the process, craft, context and mindset of design. Build your creative confidence and discover your strengths and interests. After a fun and engaging semester in CDP, you will then deepen your learning through one of five design pathways.

Why Us?

Over the course of 16 weeks, you will get a sneak peek into the five design pathways through sharing sessions and taster workshops conducted by the diplomas.

Grab the opportunity to interact with peers from the various pathways and broaden your perspective and critical thinking skills.

At the end of the first semester, choose your preferred design diploma that will lead you to diverse career options in both design and non-design sectors.
