Our MA Textiles course is built around developing your individual research into textile culture, craft and design. It will enable you to combine previous experience of textiles practice with a personal project. As a student on our course, you'll be encouraged and supported through the process of exploration, interrogation, transformation and resolution. You'll question your own conventions of making, challenge your own assumptions about your work, innovate with materials, processes, techniques and ideas, and emerge from the postgraduate experience with a renewed sense of personal vision. Our course team are practising researchers, involved in a range of textile practices, exhibiting and publishing internationally, including Professor Simon Olding and Professor Lesley Millar MBE. You'll benefit from our links with established artists and designers drawn from an international cohort, as well as studio-workshops, galleries, and the Craft Study Centre.

About this university
Students travel from around the world to attend the specialist courses at the university. When they arrive at any of the campuses or sites, the university operates a meet and greet service and runs a Welcome Event. This helps students adapt to their new home and get to know the area. Accommodation is provided for almost all international students and assistance is given to find private accommodation if none is available on campus, through the Accommodation Office. There is also help on hand for matters such as immigration and visas as well as for complying with academic requirements and help with English, for those to whom it isnâ€™t a first language. The Studentâ€™s Union (UCASU) is at the centre of life outside the classroom and is available for support and welfare issues as well as organising the various clubs and societies on offer. There is also a student bar and regular annual events organised by the union including Christmas, Summer and Graduation Balls. The clubs and societies are very diverse, ranging from sports such as football and basketball to kick boxing and netball. In the arts, there is an animate society, a salsa club and even one to learn circus skills. There are also interest and religious groups such as the Christian Unions and the LGBT society.
