Creative and professional Design is highly valued and increasingly practiced at an International level. To create the professional design leaders and practitioners of the future, seven leading design universities across Europe have together developed an innovative program to form Ordinary, Honors and Enhanced degrees within an international framework. These degrees offer exiting and challenging opportunities at the cutting edge of design education to exceptional students interested in Design, its professional practice, management and cultural context.

The course content is primarily delivered within the design studio. This approach to learning creates a socially interactive ethos of small groups of students and effective student-centered teaching, thus promoting high quality, individually driven educational development. The courses have been developed to provide the students with the opportunity to participate in long term exchanges throughout the partner institutions. These exchanges can vary from 6 months to 1 year and at least 2 exchanges are expected. Once in a placement the student is fully integrated into the school curriculum, taught in the local language, and is expected to complete their time there as a normal student of the institution.
