Why Inchbald

Our approach

The small student body, allied to intensive programmes delivered at a 1:8 tutor-to-student ratio, means that Inchbald retains a personal and social climate which prioritises individual talents and characteristics. Long-term friendships and collaborations are formed and students retain their connections to Inchbald in their professional design life.

Inchbald International

A global design school

Inchbald’s international profile has been a major part of the school's success since it first opened its doors in 1960. Students from around the globe, whether they study online or on campus, enrich the cultural diversity of the school and expand the potential professional destinations for graduates.
