Product Design

A bachelor's degree is an undergraduate degree that is offered by universities and colleges when students complete a program of study. Most bachelor courses last three or four years with some lasting up to seven years.

Product design programs may provide a variety of learning methods in their course curriculum. While many emphasize traditional lectures, seminars and workshops, some programs also offer hands-on lab courses that allow students to create real designs to market.

New Zealand is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty. Kiwi are not only one of the national symbols – the others being the silver fern leaf and koru – but also the name New Zealanders usually call themselves. Overseas students will need to pay the full tuition fees and their own living costs while studying at a New Zealand institution.
