Course summary

Programme description

This programme offers a rich and stimulating exploration of materials and textile processes. It has applications spanning a broad range of contexts and challenging any boundaries which may define what textiles can be.

We’ll nurture the development of your interests through focused research. With subjects tailored to your own curiosity in and around textiles, this variety of approaches within each cohort creates a rich environment for innovation. This breadth is also reflected in the range of staff working on the programme, with a stimulating mix of backgrounds from print, embroidery, and woven textiles as well as graphics and jewellery.

While embedding the rudiments of the techniques and facilities of the discipline, we encourage you to embrace the possibilities available and consider the collaborative partnerships and excellent facilities that the wider School and University can offer to enrich your projects. Through our links with the textiles and fashion industries, you’ll be supported to find a work placement during your studies, gaining valuable industry experience.

Career opportunities

This programme can offer a route into careers in many areas, including the fashion and textile industries, and beyond. Graduates in textiles have an excellent track record, going on to work directly in design studios in London, Paris and Milan, in companies such as Phoebe English, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors, De Gournay, and Burberry.

Our graduates have additionally gone on to become stylists, fashion buyers, and fine artists, or have pursued careers in related design industries such as automotive interiors and interior design.
