Our MA programme enables students to become open-minded professionals who are receptive to global trends and local challenges, and can provide sustainable responses through material-oriented solutions. 
Students can learn to use their art to make an internationally relevant positive impact, whether by creating craft-produced limited-series items or autonomous works of art intended for exhibitions and the art market.
Research assignments, design studies and studio exercises provide opportunities to participate in national and international professional events, exhibitions, competitions and facilitate career advancement after graduation.
