Recruit Our Students

Fully Trained Graduates Available For Employment

We are always interested to hear from design practices prepared to offer valuable work experience and internships. This frequently develops into an ongoing relationship where companies also approach us when they are recruiting contract or permanent staff and we can often recommend suitable graduates or more experienced alumni for these positions.

Great care is taken to match the student's aspirations and abilities with a suitable practice. We do not charge commission for helping to place our students - this is part of the support that we offer them.

What Our Graduates Can Offer You

The courses are planned round a series of practical design projects, many of which will actually be realised, so that the environment is as close to a practising design studio as possible.
