About the School of Design

As the Deputy Head of the School of Design it is my pleasure to welcome you to our on-line Degree Show 2022. I hope you enjoy the great range of work on display here.

I would like to whole-heartedly congratulate all our students graduating in 2022. I have every confidence that you will go on to contribute enormously to the creative industries and improve the quality of people’s lives through the power of art and design. A massive well done! It’s not been an easy year so to graduate in 2022 is a particularly great achievement.

I’d also like to thank all the teaching and support staff who have helped grow all our new graduates’ confidence and skills over their three or four years with us and to all our industry contacts who have helped shape the student experience. Together, our students, our staff and our industry partners make a brilliant team.
