Undergraduate and Postgraduate


Summer studios are designed to be high energy, high collaboration, project-based subjects where students can engage in real-world design challenges. The studios enable students to demonstrate achievement of professional skills by working on real-world projects. Facilitated by a mixture of summer studio facilitators, academic experts, industry and community partners, students work in teams to define problems, and identify, develop, and implement solutions.

Using a design-thinking framework and systems thinking, students regularly engage in pitching and critiquing work among peers. Assessment is pass/fail and requires students to demonstrate their achievement of each of the subject learning objectives using a collection of artefacts and reflections that meet the pass performance criteria.
