Applications open Monday for Design, Society, Nature

Applications for our Visual Communication programme: Design, Society, Nature open Monday, Nov 29.


This one-year course is designed to give students a unique foundation in the fundamental principles of Visual Communication and centred around the concepts Design, Society and Nature.


Students will study 6 practice-led design subjects, supported by Critical Studies and Design History, regular one to one tutorials, and a programme of workshops and lectures. In addition, students will have the opportunity to help develop and take part in Margate’s first Design Festival.


By joining this course you will become part of a community, comprising TMS students, academics, support staff, studio holders and exhibitors and the surrounding local communities / general public. The School is situated in one of the UK’s poorest wards and most pressurised high streets in the country. Our open door policy, public events and outreach work help to reinvent our High Street and help to alleviate the social pressures that come with social and urban deprivation. This is essential to our mission. We welcome students who will embrace this philosophy, and who will work in a way which benefits this community.

You will be part of an intimate cohort, bringing the first course of its kind to Margate. You will be studying in a busy, sociable environment. Classes will be hands on, dynamic and collaborative.

The Margate School is about people. As part of the course we will seek opportunities to learn outside the immediate context of the School. We believe that learning in a collaborative and critical environment will nurture independent thinking, self-confidence and raise aspirations. ​We are inspired by Margate’s past and passionate about the future. The course will support Margate’s artistic development, thirst for social justice and environmental conscience.
