Study in the UK’s historic home of textile innovation

Category


Bolton has a long and historic relationship with the textile industry stretching back 650 years. Formerly one of the largest and most productive cotton spinning centres in the world, Bolton is still the home of textile innovation today, with the University of Bolton’s courses in fashion and textile receiving international attention.

At the University of Bolton, our students are regularly in attendance at some of the world’s leading trade fairs such as Surtex New York, Indigo Paris, The British Craft Trade Fair and New Designers in London. We also continue to attract an impressive list of visiting speakers from across the commercial and craft led sectors, including Concetta Gallo MA Royal College of Art (RCA) designer for Habitat, Leigh Cooke designer for Salvatore Ferragamo and Hermes Paris, and Alison Willoughby MA RCA. 

The University’s geography also plays an important part in allowing students to raise their creative profile, as our proximity and links to major galleries, workshops and the North West means students are able to take advantage of work placement opportunities. 

As a leading centre of textiles and materials research, we understand how important industry experience is to support our student's future employment prospects. To ensure the best possible opportunities for new graduates, we regularly host industry-relevant live projects with external organisations and companies, designed to provide students with the experience of working to industry standards, alongside an insight into the realities of current design practice.
