Design School Kolding is an independent institution under the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

Although the institution is quite small, with only 400 students enrolled per year, it is an internationally acclaimed design university where students work with tools, techniques, concepts and methods in an international academic setting and enjoy easy access to excellent workshops.

In addition to Bachelor, Master’s and PhD programmes, the school offers postgraduate courses and consultancy services.

The school emphasises innovative practice and research in close collaboration with industry and wider society and believes that the overall objective of any university should be to generate and transfer knowledge in ways that create value at many different levels of society. Specifically, the school intends to support and challenge the fields of Industrial Design, Fashion Design, Textile Design, Accessory Design and Communication Design in a societal context by focusing on three strategic areas that they refer to as Design for People, Design for Planet, and Design for Play.

This means they dedicate part of their programme and their research and development activities to issues of social design, sustainability and play.
