MA Curating Contemporary Design

Now in its sixteenth year, the collaboration between Kingston University and the Design Museum has grown into one of the world’s foremost MA programmes for design curators. Through its partnerships with prestigious cultural organisations, the programme offers students the opportunity to curate live projects and build their own professional profiles.

What's on offer?

With curating briefs set by the Design Museum, British Council, Architecture Foundation, British Museum and the V&A, students develop their curatorial practice and build their portfolios. The programme has international collaboration at its heart, and offers students the opportunity to become part of a wider, ever-growing international network of curators.
