About this program

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you’re inspired by the work of textile artists like Orla Kiely and Michael Brennand-Wood, this course will help will you develop a design identity that’s just as unique, individual and commercial. We challenge our students to look at textile craft in new ways, experimenting with surfaces, form and function to create really exciting, innovative textiles. By taking traditional techniques like basketry, felt, print, dye, knit and stitch and interpreting them using unexpected technologies and materials, you’ll create fresh designs that are ahead of the curve.

This course is a great starting point for a career in; surface pattern design, textile interior design or as a designer-maker. It could also see you earning a living in printmaking, illustration, retail buying, teaching and museum conservation.

It places a strong emphasis on employability and you’ll be encouraged to find work experience opportunities to boost your portfolio. You’ll enjoy opportunities to prepare for a career on an international stage - either by studying abroad or on an international study visit.
