All students undertake a common first year before deciding which degree option to take. Subjects are designed to provide students with an introduction to furniture making techniques, materials and equipment. In second year, students choose from three degree options: Design, Making or Digital. In third year, a year-long work placement is undertaken where students can choose from a wide variety of companies in Ireland or overseas.
