MA Textile Design provides a natural progression for careers in Design (Textiles, Fashion, Interior, Print), Illustration, Conservation, Product Design, Styling, Branding/Marketing and Materials Production. Students may also choose to progress to PhD level.

NUA helped me realise that my methodology and these little obsessions of mine could be called art. It was a smooth transition from masters study to work. I approach my job in a similar way to studying in that I am sensitive to news, current publications, the documentation of projects and exhibitions.
