This course gives you the opportunity to work at the centre of the most dynamic, powerful and influential areas of professional design. You will learn how to plan and create brands that will speak with power and persuasion. At the start of the course you'll work on short projects which are aimed at challenging conventions. You'll then focus on a subject of your choice through research and development. You will also build a Professional Journal which explores current thought and practice.
Develop a project tailored to your own personal interests and career aspirations. Engage with industry by undertaking short internships and studio visits. Work in our dedicated Art and Design postgraduate studio. Benefit from regular lectures from leading figures in the design industry. Attend workshops covering typography, visual language, branding, storyboarding and life drawing sessions. Opt for an additional advanced research module if you’re thinking of progressing to PhD or Professional Doctorate study
“NTU is regarded as one of the top Art & Design Schools in the country and offered the perfect course for me, which incorporates branding. The best things about this course is that I have learnt how design can be both appealing and beneficial and that I know it is preparing me well for the future.
“My project is based around designing a tool to support mentally ill and disabled students in higher education. This course has encouraged me to test my ideas by collaborating with existing businesses and the library provides a wide range of resources which are very beneficial for my learning. The tutors at NTU are very professional and are always keen to help with my learning development.
“Living in Nottingham is great because you never need to use public transport or worry about being late as everything is walking distance.
“I would recommend this course because it is challenging and focuses on important areas such as the importance of research, testing ideas, visual language and evaluating ideas which is the process cycle of most design firms. This course will certainly give me more confidence and knowledge in branding which will be extremely useful if I ever decide to build my own brand.”
