Design, textile materials, and challenging existing textile techniques are in focus of the bachelors programme Textile Design. With knowledge in technology and the latest research in materials and fibres, the students can test the limits of how these materials could be designed.

Content

There is a strong and rapid development of textile materials and methods going on. The Swedish School of Textiles offers textile educations from first-cycle (bachelor) to third-cycle (doctoral) levels, where the students receive the latest findings about new materials as the doctoral students give lectures and hold workshops about their projects.
The well-equipped laboratories at the Swedish School of Textiles are unique and give fantastic opportunities to develop the students skills. Here, manufacturing can be done in the same way as in the industry, and the students are free to produce whatever they want.
In addition to this, The Swedish School of Textiles is also home to Smart Textiles, where the latest in fibre development takes place in a variety of research projects. What happens at Smart Textiles becomes integrated in the courses, allowing the students to test and learn to develop even further.
During the first year, the students gain a solid foundation to base their further design work on. The third year is mainly devoted to a specialisation in one particular technique: printing, knitting, or weaving, together with internships and degree work.
Throughout the entire programme, the students build up their own portfolios, and exhibition techniques are a recurring subject during all three years.
The students have several opportunities to exhibit their work, for example at the furniture fair in Stockholm and at the graduation exhibition show at the textile museum in Borås. In addition to this, collaborations with the exhibition New Designers in London have just been launched, where different British design programmes exhibit their degree projects.
After graduation, there are many career paths to choose from, such as the automotive industry, the clothing industry, interior design, starting your own business, or continue studying for a masters degree.
