Many students who study Product Design go to university to study subjects such as Product Design, Manufacturing, Industrial Design, Engineering or Architecture. However, an A Level in Product Design isn’t just for those students who want to specialise in these areas. It allows you to add a creative slant to other subjects you choose. You will learn a number of skills, such as presenting work, developing ideas, problem solving, improving communication, which are all skills which can be transferred into most careers.
