Study Abroad in Scotland at Heriot-Watt’s School of Textiles and Design-

(Summer study and year round study)

Heriot-Watt’s School of Textiles and Design started in 1883 and remains one of the leading institutions internationally. Boasting the largest weave, knit, and print studios in an academic setting, the world-class facilities are a huge draw to many students in Europe and around the world. The spacious studios, research facilities, laboratories, CAD suites, and production equipment make this the most prized school for textile and design in the UK. Nestled in the heart of tweed and tartan country, the design school draws on a rich tradition of Scottish textiles to equip future innovators. Summer Study participants have a choice between a Scottish Textiles Study Tour (with hands-on construction projects and a textile tour of London) or a Fashion Events Promotion Internship in Edinburgh. Both summer programs take place in July. Students may also enroll in the more traditional semester schedule during the year at the School of Textiles and Design. And yes, you can use your financial aid for this program.


Internships in Fashion and Textiles in Italy and London-

(Internships are available year round with flexible dates)

Our two most popular locations for fashion internships are in Italy and England. Italy has long been in the vanguard of fashion for centuries. Textile production, design, and marketing are all viable arenas in which interns can gain experience in the fashion capital of the world. London has its own fashion tradition as the center for multi-cultural, pop, and eclectic design juxtaposed with its long tradition of fine shirt, hat and shoemaking. Each region as can claim its well-earned spot as a major fashion center. World Endeavors works with participants to find an internship that best utilizes their knowledge and skills. Both Italy and England are among our two most popular destinations for our interns and many interns gain credit for their professional experience.
