Complementing and extending the university experience of design, the Design Museum Higher Education programme capitalizes on the museum as a site for learning, exchange and critical debate about modern and contemporary design and its professional contexts.
Running alongside the public programme of talks and events by leading, key figures in design, the HE programme aims to establish the museum as a key UK resource within the design and architecture sector and a cultural must-see for all students, offering rich content and specialist insight into the professional world of contemporary design.
