Over 60 years Inchbald has built up an enviable network of world class design studios.

This unrivalled breadth of connections is drawn on for students’ work observations and placements, which is central to an Inchbald education. Exposure to working design studios helps students distil the theory they have absorbed and witness how this is applied in the professional environment.

Staff consult to determine the most appropriate experiences for students.

These ordinarily take place during the Easter vacation and are organised by Inchbald in partnership with leading studios and practices. The arrangements provide students with the opportunity to observe day-to-day practice, to understand studio structure, to see real projects in progress and to get involved with all aspects of life in a working studio.

Placements and internships of a longer duration are organised after graduation, allowing graduates to see in real-time how a project moves from concept to instigation and installation. Observations, placements and internships are voluntary and opportunities may vary for those studying on a visa, depending on the conditions stipulated.
