This course is only offered full time on campus with face-to-face delivery includuing studio sessions, tutorials, masterclasses and discussion groups.

  • prepare for further postgraduate study.

You will complete a major sustained design project or series of projects. You will be supported to develop a project brief, plan a design project and deliver high quality outcomes. The program is designed to support your individual emerging practice. As you work on major design projects you will also be developing a body of work through your capstone experience in GRAP2732 Advanced Textile Design 2. The capstone experience is based on an individually negotiated major project to enable you to synthesise and integrate your knowledge, connect research and practice as well as demonstrate your holistic achievement of the program learning outcomes.

Alongside advanced studio work and projects, you will engage with critical debates in the disciplinary field that will build on and extend your existing knowledge and theoretical perspectives from your undergraduate studies. Complementing these activities you will have the opportunity to connect with an industry partner through a project or placement.
