The Surface Pattern and Textiles programme is structured to enable our learners to graduate and continue working in the field they have developed a particular specialism for - with heightened creativity and an ability to identify and capitalise on the opportunity. 

This is done through a finely tuned programme, balancing creative vision and externality, where specific skills required in the practising field are identified and developed. Practical projects are contextualised from the onset and the contextual studies and graduate attribute modules within the programme reinforce this. Live projects are peppered throughout the three or four years of study. 

Recently students have enjoyed a substantial live project with Patternbank, and in the past have enjoyed a plethora of experiences with household names such as H&M, Eley Kishimoto, and more local partners such as Orangebox and St Fagans. 

Students also have the opportunity at the end of their course to exhibit at New Designers in London.   

Graduates go on to a variety of employment including working with the following Monsoon, Accessorize, Marks and Spencer, Toast, John Lewis, Hallmark, Tigerprint, H&M, Zara and many more.
