Textile Designers consider themselves as open-minded, cosmopolitan beings willing to look beyond national and disciplinary borders. Our second-year students are invited to spend a semester at another school 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 offer tutorials, presentations and software in English and provide guest students with English summaries of content held in German.
