This course is aimed at designers, creative workers and other specialists who want to direct their practice towards progressive sustainability and social agendas. It focuses on the value of design as a vehicle for addressing social and ecological concerns in both developed and developing world settings. It will equip you with the knowledge, capabilities and confidence to challenge the status quo by applying design thinking to the generation of design-led interventions for a sustainable future.
Kingston University is the top university in the UK for design and crafts* (Guardian University Guide league tables 2020).

A good honours degree, or equivalent, in a design or design-related subject, and/or relevant professional experience. A portfolio of design / creative work – ideally showing thoughtful work across several fields or disciplines (strong and original ideas are more important than perfect realisation or execution). Non-designers are also eligible to apply for this course, in which case the portfolio of design / creative work should be replaced by a portfolio of relevant professional practice or project work from other fields. A convincing personal statement about why you want to study this course in particular, and what themes or topics most interest you.
