We are one of the UK’s leading art and design institutions and part of the University of Southampton. We are an international centre for ideas and innovation and have a long history going back almost 150 years.

We have contemporary and distinctive outlook which ensures that we can meet the challenges of our creative future. Our diverse student and staff body go on to achieve prestigious awards, prizes and commissions, which is reflective of the transformative and inclusive educational experience we offer. We support our students in building their confidence, skills, knowledge and potential, not only during but after their studies, by providing relevant experiences, employability skills, and opportunities for them to network with the creative industry.

Here at WSA our MA Fashion Design students are independent thinkers, creative problem solvers and ambitious and exciting designers. They are leaders not followers, and this is evident in the variety and quality of the work produced in our studio.
