    Hi piamiahh

    Which is better is really down to what you are looking to get out of your course and what you want to do for work when you finish university. What do you want to do at the end of it?

    I would suggest looking at the modules and comparing what is going to teach you the skills you will need for the career you want after uni.

    I guess you'd also need to take into consideration that you will be living at either university for the next three years, so maybe visit an open day and get a feel for both unis and see which you prefer, you may find you like the course at one, but when you actually get there it just isn't for you.

    I hope this helps give you an idea of where you can start searching for some info.

    Let me know how you get on, and if you've got any specific questions about NTU or the Product Design course just let me know and I'll find out for you!

    So how what are the assessments like? Is it 100% coursework or are there exams?
    Does the 1st year count and what's usually the first project you do?
    Thanks

    I've passed your enquiry onto the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment so should hopefully be able to answer these for you soon!

    Hi piamiahh

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you!

    To answer your questions:

    You’ll be assessed through coursework, which will consist of projects, reports, presentations, essays and a portfolio.


    Year One
    Coursework - 100%
    Practical work - 0%

    Year Two
    Coursework - 93%
    Practical work - 7%


    Year Three
    Optional placement year

    Year Four
    Coursework - 85%
    Practical work - 15%

    The website also highlights what students will study in year one, highlighting the nature of projects that you will undertake:
    • Design Practice You'll work on four complex projects – including live projects – developing an understanding of how to formulate appropriate solutions to design problems, and considering influences such as applied technology, human factors, quality and reliability.
    • Design studies This module has three key themes: a study of contemporary and historic design debates; an independent project looking at a theme such as the role of the the designer, gender, or consumerism; and a research article – an opportunity for you to reflect on your thoughts about design and your role and philosophy as a designer.

    Finally, the first year of studies on this course does count, as the module specification identifies “you need to obtain 260 CPs (120 CPs in each of the years) to obtain the honours degree.

    You can read the module specification for further details on the course and teaching structure.
