MA Future Design

'It’s a great place to study.'

Olivia Monaghan

Why did you choose to study MA Future Design?

I wanted to further develop my existing skills, broaden my design knowledge and improve my portfolio of completed design projects.

The MA is an excellent course. It’s great to be able to use state of the art computers and software and work in purpose built facilities.

What aspect of the course have you particularly enjoyed?

It has been stimulating to work in teams with people from other backgrounds – fine artists, architects, interior designers – and I’m sure the contacts and networks will prove to be extremely valuable.

And what does the future hold for you?

Ultimately, I want to set up a freelance design business with my fiancé. I think that with our different backgrounds and skills we will be able to offer a comprehensive design service, especially with the network of contacts I have built up with other students on the MA course.
