Undergraduate studios, master's and professional diploma units 2015-16

At the start of the year, the leaders of each studio present their studio's themes, position and approach so that you can choose which one to join. This allows students to choose from a wide range of issues, methods of working and different types of projects.

Following from the last year, we are again introducing Dissertation Studios for Year 3 students – a unique development by Cass Culture, allowing students from different disciplines to develop their dissertations under an expert supervisor.

Our studios evolve year on year. You can see details of older studios in our archive.
