Program description

Furniture and Product Design (Including Foundation Year) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Furniture and Product Design (including foundation year) BA (Hons) has a built-in preparatory year that will allow you to explore different creative practices in The Cass, before you embark on more in-depth study of furniture and product design.

The Program was designed to accommodate two purposes to allow you to build a portfolio of high quality work and to provide an alternative route into an undergraduate degree, if you don’t meet the necessary requirements for the three-year degree. On graduation you’ll receive the same award and title as students on the three-year degree.

Our Furniture and Product Design (including foundation year) BA degree Program is designed to help you establish individual focus and direction in Year 0, before embarking on more in-depth study and practice in furniture and product design.

You’ll share the foundation year with others studying a degree with a foundation year at The Cass. Your shared curriculum will allow you to discover your potential and learn techniques within different creative practices. As you complete this foundation year, you’ll build a portfolio of high-quality work that will incorporate short-term and long-term projects you worked on throughout the year.

A key feature of the foundation year is that you’ll regularly get to present your work in-progress and finished projects to peers and tutors on the course and across the School, which will prepare you for the public exhibition at the end of the year.

In the subsequent three years of your studies you’ll join students on the three-year degree and study the same content and the same modules as them. To find out more about the content you’ll study during those years, visit our Furniture and Product Design BA (Hons) course page.

If, at the end of your foundation year, you’d like to specialise in a different discipline at The Cass, there will be flexibility to allow you to do this.
