This integrated Master’s is a new course that draws on all of our experience and the success we have had with both our BSc (Hons) Product Design degree and our BA (Hons) Product Design degree. The advantage of undertaking an integrated Master's is that you are eligible for a tuition fee loan for the entire course, including the postgraduate element – an option not available if you study a traditional Bachelor's degree followed by a standalone Master's.
This degree has been accredited as fulfilling the requirements for Chartered Technological Product Designer (CTPD). You will be entitled to free membership of the IED and receive their bi-monthly journal free of charge, too.
You'll follow the same programme as the BA (Hons)/BSc (Hons) Product Design until your final year, with both of these courses designed to provide you with the skills you'll need to develop successful commercial products. This degree offers a well-balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical study of product design, ensuring that you leave with an excellent understanding of how products are made. This knowledge can inform your designs, allowing you to consider the practicalities of producing a design, as well as its overall function and appearance. 91% of our final year students think the course is intellectually stimulating.

The opportunity to undertake a work placement in the third year of your course will give you invaluable experience of the industry, enabling you to further develop your skills and ensuring that you have practical experience and industry contacts once you graduate.
For 2019 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in August 2018 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
