Design Year in London

An unrivalled opportunity to complete your University of Liverpool undergraduate degree, in one of the world's leading design destinations.

Please note the deadline for students to express your interest in studying in London has been extended to Monday 28 January 2019.

If you are studying the following programmes you can now complete your third year of undergraduate study at our London campus:

The University of Liverpool in London is a pioneer in the shifting role of design in the physical, economic and social environment. We work collaboratively with academic, professional and and industrial partners in ways that cut across individual disciplines. This transdisciplinary approach combines with high levels of creativity and technology to create new and transformative responses to “real world” challenges.

Teaching is delivered by expert academics operating at the forefront of their field and specifically recruited to teach these programmes alongside existing University of Liverpool staff. Your learning outcomes and qualification will be unaffected by the change of location and there will be an interdisciplinary design orientation. In addition you will have the opportunity of hands-on experience with virtual design technologies on campus. You will graduate in Liverpool alongside fellow students who have remained in Liverpool.

We will encourage a collaborative learning experience, which stimulates creativity, innovation and problem solving, while opening up new experiences and networks to boost your future prospects.

The difference in cost of living in London is recognised through the London Weighting of £2,572 which will be added to your student loan. We also offer a £2,000 London enhancement on the Liverpool Bursary for eligible students.

Develop skills, expertise and experience

Our London design studio takes a modern transdisciplinary approach, with effective collaboration across a range of academic disciplines in order to effectively tackle the design challenges of the 21st century.

Demand for expertise and skills within advanced modelling, simulation and immersive visualisation is strong within the region as many design and architecture practices have their headquarters and design teams based in and around London. Many businesses are finding it difficult to recruit staff that have experience of these emerging technologies. Capabilities such as creative problem solving and collaborative working are highly desirable. Our collaborative approach in London and the learning experience offered by our on-campus Virtual Engineering Centre, gives you a powerful edge to your future employability. 

How to apply

Once all expressions of interest have been gathered, you will be invited to an event to find out more about the programme and start the formal application process. If successful in your application, your qualification will be unaffected by switching locations.
