Our Fashion Design programme confidently prepares students for a career within the fashion industry. As well as learning the fundamentals of fashion design, students are taught about key elements of the fashion business, to enable their success in the fashion industry, and acquire creative, critical and communication skills. Extensive links and collaborations with our industrial partners help students to gain a ‘live’ learning experience.
Applicants should have a keen desire and aptitude in art and design areas. Students are taught about the primary needs of the client, the focal point of the design and its appeal to customers/consumers, along with marketing skills and trends analysis to support the product.
Ordinary degree students wishing to progress to the Honours 4h year will need to continue their studies in the UK.
