The success of Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors here at Bath Spa University has allowed the opportunity for two exit awards to be created in the discipline. The course aims to provide ambitious students with a dynamic practical and theoretical design education, supported by industry networks and directed towards the development of a creative career or advanced research in the textile discipline. The differing exit points between the BA (Hons) course and the Integrated Masters course provide a wider range of opportunities for students to define their individual direction and professional development for their future.
Typical offer range for UK / EU applicants
We recommend that applicants undertake a pre-degree foundation diploma in Art and Design.
However if applying with A-Levels only, a total of 260 points (with a grade B in an Art and Design related subject) is expected, supported by a high quality portfolio.
Applicants applying with a BTEC Extended Diploma are expected to achieve an overall Merit grade (Merit, Merit, Merit).
In Year One you start to cultivate your observation, thinking and drawing skills into your individual style. You begin to explore the field of textile design and it’s contextual framework. You learn skills in understanding colour, fabric, yarns, materials and dyeing. Supporting textile design, you engage in basic pattern cutting, sewing construction and digital design applications. Taught techniques in embroidery, print, knit and weave provide the foundation to your design development.
In Year Two you start to explore your potential focus engaging with modules as a textile designer for either fashion or interiors, and begin committing to areas of textile specialisms. Your facility for thinking, writing and analysing is expanded through professional and contextual studies. To establish an understanding of your style and direction, you tackle a combination of projects looking at advancing textile techniques and understanding your career options, these include competitions, live briefs and exhibitions.
In Year Three you undertake a dissertation and state your identity as a textile designer through an initial exploratory personal studio module. The professional context module leads all students up to midway through the academic year, and at this point as a BA (Hons) student you undertake the final 60-credit module leading to a degree show and graduation.
The Textile Design graduates have secured employment in a range of career directions, working for design studios and design companies, setting up their own businesses or they have developed related careers within retail and the broader fashion and interior industries.
Our graduates have also continued with their study undertaking MA´s, PGCE´s or advancing their research through PhD´s.
