About the courseThis is a stand-alone, credit-bearing, one-year pre-masters course to prepare you for further study on one of our practice-based masters courses. It is ideal if you already have a bachelors degree in a related discipline and are intending to apply for one of our MA courses, but would like first to consolidate your practical skills and benefit straight away from the design education offered at Kingston University. The learning experience of this course will be tailored according to your subject area (which you should indicate when you apply) by the relevant postgraduate course teams. Available subjects are Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration Animation and Product plus Furniture Design. You will work within your subject-specific course peer group, the wider course peer group (comprised of students from across a range of subject areas), and alongside current postgraduate students. The aim will be to build up a strong portfolio of relevant project work that clearly demonstrates your developing intellectual and practical strengths. Projects are designed to help you develop creative and flexible thinking, sound technical skills, and an understanding of the need for a variety of approaches to any given subject or brief.
