With support from our experienced staff (all industry practitioners or researchers) you will be encouraged to create interdisciplinary collaborations and take up work placements, both within the University and through our strong links with the Scottish textiles and fashion industry.

You will also investigate the connection between clothing, well-being and identity, by working with our leading Diversity Network initiative to challenge standardised ways that designers consider and celebrate the end consumer.

We also maintain key links with the National Museum of Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland.

You’ll be working within a vibrant art college environment, with access to all the facilities you need to produce innovative design.
