The Swedish School of Textiles


At the Swedish School of Textiles the creativity of art is combined with the ingenuity of technology. Our degree programmes cover the entire field of textiles, from design through manufacturing to management and technology. Our programmes focus on textiles and are divided into three areas: design, engineering, and management. Our facilities feature modern lecture halls and well-equipped laboratories that cater for everything related to textiles. The Swedish School of Textiles currently has about 900 students from all over the world. The school is a part of the University of Borås.

Research at the Swedish School of Textiles is of a high international standard and focuses on sustainability – how can our research contribute to a better world? Together with international research networks, we take a closer look at consumer behaviour, global markets, and how we can improve our recycling of clothing, as well as exploring new ways we can use textiles. This research is also integrated into our master's programmes. After graduation, students interested in research careers can apply for certain research programmes. We are entitled to award doctoral degrees within three of these areas; Library and Information Science, Resource Recovery and Textiles and Fashion (design and general).
