Summary

Plymouth College of Art has been granted full university status and formally recognised with the new title of Arts University Plymouth, following approval by the Privy Council. This makes us the City of Plymouth’s first specialist arts university.

The title of Arts University Plymouth signifies a change to the way that the world will see us, our position within the sector and the mobility of our graduates; but not a change in the way that we see ourselves or what we do. Arts University Plymouth will build upon the existing strength of our unique culture and incredible community; we have no plans to change the specialist focus of the work we do together. The name Arts University Plymouth will appear on our qualifications, making it easier for employers and peers to recognise that our students were taught at a leading specialist arts university.

In May we were awarded the Best Small or Specialist University at the 2022 WhatUni Student Choice Awards, coming top in a list of well-respected specialist UK universities, based on unbiased and honest reviews from students across the UK, in a category that highlights the quality of our provision as a specialist creative university.

Our MA Textile Design programme will challenge and accelerate your individual approach to decorative design, through in-depth personal development in design, material knowledge, process, colour, pattern and texture, in the context of textiles for fashion and interiors.

Ethos This programme facilitates an experimental and interdisciplinary approach to textiles, which values innovation and craftsmanship, placing pattern and decoration at the centre of contemporary design practice. This programme encourages you to pursue new thinking to develop your design ideas, and to examine more personal references. Drawing, design and visual and material interpretation are at the core of the MA Textile Design, which specialises in decorative design applications. You will also interact with emerging technologies and sustainable solutions, capitalising on collaborative opportunities and the numerous options for textile design, making and production.

Outline You will be encouraged to situate your creativity in entrepreneurial contexts, through self-initiated and independent approaches to design. You will access superbly equipped workshops and design studios, gaining advice from expert design teams with an international profile. Connecting with students across disciplines is encouraged, so you can maximise the opportunity to forge design partnerships and explore visual language in a range of contexts. Taught delivery within the programme provides a mix of discipline-specific methods and cross-disciplinary approaches that can be applied across creative and commercial sectors. Our shared module structure allows you to develop a dialogue with creative practitioners across the Graduate School.

Supported practices This programme supports design-based textile practice, including surface pattern for textiles.
