We consider textile designers to be open-minded, cosmopolitan beings willing to look beyond national and disciplinary borders. Our second-year students are invited to spend the spring semester at another university in order to gain insight into product design from a different perspective and to exchange ideas in other parts of the world.
The Lucerne School of Art and Design maintains a diverse network of renowned partner universities and institutions:
We cordially invite students from other universities to spend a semester with us, in Central Switzerland. The second year of the Bachelor in Textile Design is particularly suitable for hosting exchange students. Switzerland is a multicultural country with four official languages. Since Lucerne is located at the centre of the predominantly German-speaking part of the country, German is the prevailing language at the Lucerne School of Art and Design, and spoken as a Swiss dialect (if not written) in everyday life. Therefore, German skills – while not mandatory - are certainly an advantage. In the second year of study, we provide tutorials, presentations and software in English and are able to support exchange students whose abstracts are written in English.
