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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
