It is up to you whether you make a difference through designing physical objects, processes, experiences or systems. The programme is delivered through a series of projects, and you will work independently as well as engage in group work, and in collaborations with the local and regional community and enterprises.
The Design + Change programme is delivered in English and we welcome students from all over the world. This means that you as a student are part of a group characterised by diversity and are well prepared for an international design career.
