In 2019 we launched the first Disability, Design and Innovation (DDI) MSc at UCL, where design thinking meets global policy and the societal context of disability. The programme harnesses academic excellence, innovative practice and co-creation to tackle global challenges from a new perspective. Uniquely taught across UCL, Loughborough University London and the London College of Fashion (UAL).

  • Disability, Design and Innovation MSc was nominated for a Tech for Good award in its first year
  • First cohort of graduates have begun entering the Disability Innovation field
  • Our Academic Research Centre published 55 research publications in 2019/20 alone - sharing our findings globally
