About this course

The Postgraduate Diploma in Design provides an opportunity for students across the design spectrum to upskill in creative practice, modern design technology, and theory.

Extend your design speciality or explore new horizons, with the opportunity to specialise in Fashion Design, Industrial Design, Photography, Spatial Design, Textile Design or Visual Communication Design.

This one year, full-time programme will give you an introduction to postgraduate research processes and contemporary design theory. You'll push the boundaries of your design practice with a significant research-led independent project, in addition to elective courses and an externally focused course on creative entrepreneurship, exhibition, or writing in the creative arts.

This programme is the same as the Honours year of the Bachelor of Design with Honours, so gives you a chance to bridge the gap to postgraduate design study if you don't have an Honours degree.
