People

Staff within the Design School are strategically drawn from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. They represent specialist knowledge and expertise in key areas as well as diverse experiences and perspectives. Our staff, whether they are engaged in research or industry practice, are at the forefront of challenging and shaping the design disciplines.

In addition to the permanent staff we employ a host of visiting tutors to deliver lectures, seminars as well as provide tutorial support. As key practitioners and theorists from both national and international perspectives they are an integral part of the teaching and learning experience with the Design School.
