The Innovation School is a leading centre for design teaching that applies Design Innovation to the key issues defining contemporary society. We examine design’s role as a catalyst for positive change, and investigate its potential impact on people and places.
Our students, faculty and researchers adopt a human-centred, research-driven design approach as they explore the “near future” and “next now” in search of actionable innovations. We challenge traditional perceptions of design, and promote new ways of thinking, doing and designing, which we apply in diverse and complex real-world contexts.
Students at our campuses in Glasgow and the Highlands have access to dedicated teaching staff and outstanding facilities. Live projects provide opportunities to engage with businesses, communities and the public sector, while workshops and exchange programmes with international partners enhance the Innovation School’s global outlook.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses provide a unique and rounded skill set that prepares graduates for roles in private or public sector organisations, consultancy, self-employment or further study.
