Overview

The laboratories at the Swedish School of Textiles, a part of the University of Borås, are well-equipped and staffed by highly skilled people with extensive experience in textile production. Here, the students work as independently as possible, and during the first semester of the programme optional introductory courses are given on how to handle the equipment.

Students apply to this Fashion and Textile Design (Specialisation in Fashion Design) from The Swedish School of Textiles/University of Borås by submitting an individual project, and then they work on developing that same project during the entire programme. The education places great emphasis on artistic work, and teachers as well as supervisors and technicians encourage experimental, investigating work that pushes the boundaries of the textile field.

The first half of the last year is devoted to a degree project, and after that there are three choices for the rest of the school year: further develop the degree project, take a preparatory research course, or internship.

Career opportunities

The Master’s Programme in Textile and Fashion Design has two specialisations: Textile design and Fashion design.

Specialisation in Fashion Design: After graduation, many of the students move on to being employed at large or small-scale fashion companies in Sweden or abroad, while others set up their own freelance business or continue studying for a PhD.

The completed education (120 HE credits) leads to a Master of Fine Arts in Fashion and Textile Design with specialisation in Fashion Design.
