Allround designer

(Autumn and spring)

Are you a creative person? Do you like to make your own designs for products, consumers and services? Have you always wanted to work for an innovative small or medium sized enterprise (SME) or design agency? 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we cancelled all exchange programmes for autumn 2020. We hope to see you in spring 2021!

Then join our exchange programme All-round Designer in autumn and/or spring.

Students Allround Designer

About the programme

Working for a design agency or an innovative SME requires all-round skills and knowledge. Your client expects you to consider all technical, commercial and human-interaction interests it takes to turn his product idea into a market hit. This all-round or integrated approach is what this programme is all about. Key is that it involves working on real assignments for real clients!

Core activity

Do you plan to develop your design skills and become familiar with the latest practices in product design, such as interactive consumer design, service design and the cradle-to-cradle approach? This exchange programme will help you bring your product design knowledge up to date.

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So studying at Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your overall study time. You will make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.


Together with the forms you have to send in a portfolio of your product design work. The portfolio can be digital or hard copy. It will be used to assess your skills. Based on this assessment you will be given advice on whether to choose this programme. This programme starts every year in Septembre (fall) and February (spring). 

Entry Requirements

General entry requirements: two years of bachelor study in a relevant field (e.g. engineering, business, etc.) and English-language skills at B2 level. 
Note that for the Innovation variant also a business related study applies.

Total ECTS Credits: 30
Level: Bachelor
