Course content

Disability Innovation has huge potential to make a fairer world for everybody. To accelerate this movement we need a new generation of pioneers who understand the big picture and can bring together the stakeholders needed to make a difference. Disability, Design and Innovation MSc, are looking for exceptional students with the drive and determination to push the boundaries of this new area of study spanning disability, design, innovation and international development.

By 2050 it is estimated that only 10% of the two billion people requiring Assistive Technology (AT) will have access to the life changing products they need, due to systematic global failures in provision for wheelchairs, hearing aids, prosthetics and other essential disability products. The  GDI Hub aims to disrupt how we see disability and the technologies used to assist disabled people globally.

  • Led and awarded by UCL with teaching across Loughborough University London and the UAL, London College of Fashion. 
  • The programme harnesses academic excellence, innovative practice and co-creation to tackle global challenges from a new perspective. 
  • In this rapidly growing area students will learn from global experts, live research projects and high profile global collaborations.
