Bachelor's degree programme

Become part of a creative and experimental setting and learn what design is – and what it can be used for. In 3 years you will be qualified to work as a designer on a wide variety of projects, both in Denmark and internationally.

The bachelor programme is a three-year undergraduate degree programme for creatives who want to work with their head as well as their hands. You will receive theoretial and practical training in design methods, concept development and materials, and you will test your knowledge on real-life cases and by doing your own experiments.

During the programme you will be able to travel and go on exchange, and you can do an entire semester or complete an internship abroad.

Study programmes

You can choose between four study programmes.

Industrial Design
If you are interested in designing products, e.g. furniture, cars or other everyday objects, a bachelor in Industrial Design is the way to go. The programme teaches you to consider aspects related to design, business, sustainability and production and how you go from ideation and concept development to shaping and producing the objects we use on a daily basis.

Communication Design
The Communication Design programme teaches you to design communication for a specific purpose. This could be wayfinding in a hospital setting, a game to promote human interaction, or a user-friendly digital platform – just to give a few examples. You learn to work with analogue and digital media and how the right concept development and strategy can enable you to design communication that engages people. 

Fashion and Textile Design
The study programme is for students who enjoy working with textiles, fashion and sustainability. You will be experimenting with new shapes, materials and production techniques and learn how to develop concepts and business ideas. The fashion and textile industry is one of the world’s most polluting industries, which is why we place great emphasis on making sure that we train you to design for sustainability.

Accessory Design
Accessory Design allows you to create jewellery, shoes, bags – all those things that we label accessories og wearables; decorative and functional objects that we wear close to the body. In the programme you will experiment with materials, form language, craft techniques and digital tools such as 3D computer design. At the same time you will learn to develop concepts, products and business ideas that are sustainable and socially resonsible.

Your typical week

Collaboration is key in all four programmes. You will be working with other design students on big and small projects, most often with a specific topic in mind. Some briefs are given to you by companies, others are more open and playful.

A lot of students work on their own projects parallel to the teaching. You can use the school’s workshops, which are open 24/7.

  • Teaching approx 10 hours a week
  • Project work and workshops approx 20-40 hours a week
  • Presentations and feedback approx 4-5 hours a week
