Course Summary


For those interested in a technological or scientific qualification that will lead to an opportunity to work and travel within a manufacturing industry, the benefits offered by this course are outstanding. With a wave of retirements of the Boomer Generation within the next decade, the industry, which is already short of technically skilled staff, is searching for well-trained young executives to support and prepare for these senior positions.

This course is unique in the UK and makes our graduates highly sought after by employers. Through this course you can specialize in and focus on an aspect of the leather industry that you find particularly interesting. You will be exposed to several science disciplines and interact with industrial experts during workshops and seminars.

Our three-year Honours degree course is a complete preparation for entry into the leather industry. Our graduates can work in tanneries and leather chemical companies around the world with an increasing demand for leather skills amongst the top leather-using brands that include companies in the sports, luxury goods, footwear, automotive and fashion sectors.
