Design Studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Skilled design professionals are needed in many organizations to tool custom solutions for common problems. Because the design field encompasses a broad variety of environments and applications, specialists are needed in small business, large corporations, education, non-profits, and government.
