BA (Hons) Textiles is one of three awards offered within the Contemporary Design Crafts programme, with BA (Hons) Jewellery also launching in September 2019 and BA (Hons) Ceramics and Glass launching in September 2020. Whilst sharing the same programme specification, each of the three awards will establish their own subject specific identity.

All Learning and Teaching is in English and knowledge of Russian language is not necessary for the post.
