School of Design Studies
The School of Design provides an interdisciplinary approach to the field of design in keeping with the multi-dimensional nature of the creative demands of contemporary design.
Guided by a committed staff of recognised designer educators and researchers, COFA students are encouraged and challenged to give new vision to familiar objects, graphics and environments and to transform an object, graphic or an environment while retaining (or improving) its core functionality.
The School of Design Studies administers the disciplines of applied object, ceramics, environments and spatial design, graphics, jewellery and textiles.
The School of Design Studies offers an integrated approach to the study of design ensuring that students are exposed to a wide array of approaches to the conceptualisation and implementation of the designed object, graphic or environment.
With their broad skill-base COFA design graduates are able to work in arts, design and multimedia industries
