School of Design

The first design school to be established in a polytechnic, the School of Design is reputed for its award-winning students and graduates, many of whom are today’s leaders in the creative industry. A five-time consecutive winner of the Institution of the Year award at the national Crowbar Awards, the School of Design remains the only pure design school in a polytechnic, with the widest and most comprehensive range of design courses. In preparing its students to be tomorrow’s designers, the school partners government agencies, prominent commercial entities and community organisations to provide a pipeline of real-life project briefs for its design students to tackle, ensuring that its students are kept up-to-date with current trends and practices in design and beyond.
