We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Textiles equip postgraduates with the skills to develop and produce both naturally-occurring and synthetic fibres, to generate yarn or thread for making materials.
Related subjects include Contemporary Textiles, Printed Textiles, and Textile Technology. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field, such as Materials Science, Design Technology, or Art and Design.
Textile production is essential for a variety of the products we use and consume, from clothing and furniture to medical dressings and even implants. As such, there are a broad range of textiles which you might investigate on these courses, including areas you may wish to specialise in further.
For example, you might want to focus on the processing and production of plant textiles such as hemp for the creation of rope or apparel, or perhaps coconut fibres to create twine, doormats and sacking. Alternatively, you may specialise in synthetic textiles, particularly techniques such as weaving, knitting and crocheting for clothing items.
Careers in this field may range from frontline development of natural and synthetic textiles in production factories, or the design of products on behalf of retail companies.

The textile sector is continually evolving and has pushed the boundaries beyond the conventional textiles industry. The interface of design and (sustainable) technology is the key to develop and innovate new products that meet the needs of changing market demands and are commercially relevant.
Our Fashion and Textiles Design degree explores concepts and contemporary topics in design, fashion and textiles. The course aims to develop practice-based learning, informed by an in-depth study of design.
Find out more about this programme at the next. RCA Open Day. on Saturday 23 March. Textiles offer uniquely fluid, flexible and infinitely adaptable ways of questioning, examining and solving the some of the societal challenges that face us.
The Masters (MSc) course in Textile Technology (Technical Textiles) enables you to develop a high level of understanding of modern textiles, preparing you for a career in the textile or related industries as a manager or researcher, or for an academic career.
The course philosophy is that of experimentation, offering a challenge to conventional notions of medium - specificity in order to properly facilitate your ‘style' of expression and your inherent interests.
The Design School’s long standing heritage, highly qualified staff and excellent facilities, provides a stimulating environment for highly motivated, dedicated and innovative graduates from fashion and textile design disciplines to take their development to the next level of creative innovation.
