The Writtle College School of Design has been ranked in the top 10 of the Guardian Art and Design League table – 2010. It is the highest placed Specialist College in the Art and Design table and has scooped its first ever entry in the table - which sits within the top ten.

The data collected to compile the league tables is from the National Student Survey. The survey provides feedback from full-time undergraduate students and graduates questioned six months after leaving university. The survey is based on information published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

On the ‘What Uni’ website a Design student made the following comment about Writtle School of Design: “The lecturers are really supportive and really care. They always have time for students, and never miss lectures, or are late, as in some universities. We are constantly being told that the Landscape Architecture and Landscape and Garden Design courses are amongst the best in the country! Proven by the number of companies attending the final year exhibitions and cueing up to hire Writtle students.” (Source - What Uni.com. Student studied Landscape Architecture PG Cert/ Dip/ MA)

Jeff Logsdon, Head of Writtle School of Design, said: “Here within the Writtle School of Design (WSD) we teach art, architecture and design practices to all WSD students. Our graduates are highly sought after by employers for their combination of interdisciplinary skills gained from the College.”

Writtle School of Design was founded in 2006.
