Since 1989, the ESDI School of Design, center of the Ramon Llull University (URL), has been committed to people who dare to shape the world again and shape and shape their future. Its mission is based on the desire to impart knowledge about art and design through a creative process determined by analysis, effort and talent.
In 1992 ESDi was the first center in Spain to teach university design. by obtaining his own degree from the Ramon Llull University: "Higher Degree in Design". Taking this into account, in 2000 the academic merger was signed with the School of Fashion Arts and Techniques (EATM) of Barcelona, promoting both the textile and fashion specialty and the rest of the studies taught.
Since 2008/09, ESDi has been teaching the degree in design as a center attached to the Ramon Llull University, according to the standards established in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). This is a fact of great importance that, after graduation, allows the designer to access higher education: master's degrees and postgraduate degrees, as well as the national and international labor market on the same terms as other official degrees.
In this way, ESDi is the pioneer university in offering official studies in design in all its modalities: graphics, product, interior design, fashion, audiovisual and design management (multidisciplinary integration). Likewise, the center was a pioneer in the teaching of third-cycle design studies, especially in the teaching of an official university master's degree that opens the doors to access to a doctorate in design.
ESDI structures its teaching activities into several teaching and knowledge development units (UDDC) and experimentation and application units (UEA). Since 2012, the center has a research group recognized by the Ramon LLull University (URL): TADD, Theory, Analysis and Design Development.
If you are looking for a university residence as a student at ESDi, we recommend Sabadell or Barcelona, being close to the train stations or Rodalies.
