Awards – new

The school supports a number of awards that provide exciting opportunities for our students to highlight their skills and ideas, to work on different projects, as well as industry briefs and provide students special recognition for their work.

Enterprise Awards

This school organised competition highlights the commercial potential of our students’ projects. Our graduating students were asked to illustrate how their project had commercial potential, showing their understanding of their market, target audience and viability of their design. The entries were presented to a panel of industry leaders who critiqued and judged the projects and then awarded the winning designs. There are 4 categories – Design, Fine Art, Graphics and Textiles.

Industry Live Project awards

This intense seven-day project requires our final year students to work on a brief set by industry partners. The industry project is an opportunity for the students to experience working on a design challenge set by world class design consultancies. This involves defining a product opportunity based upon design research and producing a solution to a real-life scenario within specific considerations and constraints.
