ucol furniture design school

a tradition of fine design

Throughout your exciting and challenging two‐year learning journey, we aim to make your study as enjoyable, interesting and instructive as possible.

Our unique diploma programme is designed to provide an understanding of the complete design process - from concept idea, to design, to fabrication, and showcasing the final product. Our emphasis on practical learning means your study programme is a two-way process - a conversation in which you and your lecturers and peers are actively involved.

At UCOL it's important to us that:

  • our graduate furniture designer-makers are skilled, passionate about their field and able to apply their skills in a range of environments,
  • the furniture industry actively contributes to our learning partnership between students, staff and the programme, and 
  • we help increase the public's appreciation of superbly designed furniture as an integral part of daily life.
