We are the School of Fashion and Textiles and we inspire self-expression that enriches the development of individuals and the industry. It’s a belief that began through our involvement in the need for art and design during the industrial revolution, and continues today through our close connections, proximity and integral role in the sector.
Our courses address the global fashion and textiles industries and you will be welcomed into a creative, collaborative and international student community. Our academic and technical support staff are on hand to help you develop practical skills in our extensive range of modern workshops as you are encouraged to define what design means to you.
