Testimonials

Rebecca Hempton

Fashion and Textiles | 2017

"I think that it has been so beneficial to myself as a student and for the course profile to exhibit at both local and international events. These opportunities are something which sets Bolton aside from other universities and is a huge reason why I chose to study here.

I have recently been to a job interview which was successful and I have now gained a position within the industry; one of their feedback points being that they were impressed that I already had great industry experience. Working towards exhibitions for clients really helped me to see the purpose and understand the process of designing for a specific market or brief.

New Designers also left me with many contacts including recognition from Johnson Tiles, Liberty London and Trendease International who have asked to show a sample of my work on the Innovation Platform at MoOD Brussels this year."

Faye Power

Fashion and Textiles Lecturer |

"The fashion course gives you the opportunity to find out who you want to be as a designer. It teaches you the fundamental skills needed to enter the industry but also allows you to have fun and take creative risks.

The range of programmes on offer within the School of the Arts offers opportunities to collaborate and work across disciplines, allowing students to become specialists within their field whilst also gaining a strong understanding of the diversity of the creative industries. We don't take large cohorts so each student is valued and has access to academic staff, technical support and outstanding workshop facilities.

I enjoy working with students who are willing to play and take risks with materials and processes, challenging what is expected and known. I love it when students come with new ideas and we can work collaboratively to find solutions to creative problems whether that be through material sampling, use of new technologies and media, or working with traditional processes."
