About the Cass
The Cass at London Metropolitan University is internationally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent facilities and unique interdisciplinary opportunities.

Learning through practice, playing with process and working with clients, students at The Cass gain real world experience in both individual and collaborative projects, engaging with professionals, communities and companies. There is a strong emphasis in our studios on socially engaged design applied to both local and global contexts, and many projects focus on London.

Our central London location also gives you easy access to the creative and cultural hub which surrounds the Aldgate campus. Our many specialist facilities include wood and metal workshops, laboratories, TV and recording studios, editing suites, darkrooms and Metropolitan Works, our digital manufacturing centre.

Many of our students have exhibited at major international exhibitions and festivals, and have won prestigious awards.

The School is divided into 'Casses' with groups of courses clustered under the broader umbrella of the school. CASS 3D consists of Jewellery & Silversmithing, Textiles and Fashion Courses as well as Furniture and Product.

"Cass 3D is a group of courses, but also a powerhouse for the understanding all three-dimensional design. It’s about the way people talk to each other through the objects they use, how objects can inform spaces and how people relate to each other." / Marianne Forrest, Head of Cass 3D.
