MA Design: Expanded Practice


Goldsmiths, University of London    Department of Design

Full time See Course MA 15 months full-time

About the course

This course is a radical post-disciplinary programme for practitioners who want to push the boundaries of what design can be and do. During this MA we work with you to transform your practice as a critical and social undertaking.

By challenging the role and norms of traditional design towards an emerging type of ‘advanced design’, unshackled from the history of specialisms and entrenched methods, you will become part of a community of practice. You will be encouraged to actively contribute to a deep understanding of how design is set to address and affect change within contemporary society.

Entry Requirements

You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class in a relevant/related subject.

If you don't have a related undergraduate degree we also welcome those who have significant practical experience in a design-related field: you will be judged on the relevance of your previous work experience and on your art and/or design work. We will also consider applicants who do not have a design-related background but who have engaged in research either in academia (as students or academics) or at work.

Please see website for further details.

Student Profile(s)

Amira

When I decided to pursue my master’s degree, I started looking for the top design schools around the world and Goldsmiths was on top of the list. The more I read about it and the more I informed myself about the MA Design: Expanded Practice programme, the more I became really excited about becoming a Goldsmithser!



After finishing my bachelor degree in 2012 in the faculty of Applied Sciences and Arts at the German University in Cairo, I started working right away. I’ve been exploring different directions and career possibilities in Egypt. I worked as a teaching assistant at the University, alongside working on my own startup and involving myself in the entrepreneurship scene. 
One of my biggest dreams and goals to achieve is to make use of the craftsmanship within Egypt. I believe in our craftsmen, their skills, and their very powerful talent that has been implanted in our heritage since ancient times. I also believe in the strength, dynamics and the unlimited potential in the craftsman-designer work exchange. Being involved in such a programme is a great way to expand my practices and pinpoint overlaps between design and other fields.



The course is very well structured and we have a great pool of knowledge and fascinating staff members who make this experience one of a kind. Each one of them is a unique character who . is worth getting in touch with and learning from. 



As for London, I think it’s a very interesting city. You’ll definitely find yourself somewhere in its diverse communities and places. Using your body as a vehicle is the greatest way to explore the streets of London so I advise you to just walk around and let yourself be surprised.
