Course summary

BA (Hons) Fashion is a 'classically constructed' degree that focuses on the essential partnership between innovative design and technical excellence. In line with the contemporary fashion industry, the programme encourages students to consider sustainable approaches to their practice, exploring the relationship between good design and timeless fashion.

The programme aims to give students the opportunity to explore traditional and creative pattern cutting (including zero waste approaches), tailoring, modelling/draping on the stand, specialist finishing, fabric sourcing, handling and embellishment, and digital fabric print. In addition to 3D fashion skills, students can study the fashion design process, traditional and digital visual communication and portfolio development, in addition to other areas such as fashion trends and styling.

As part of their professional development students are expected to engage in external opportunities during their three years on the programme. These typically include internships, international competitions, collaborative projects and exhibitions, and more. External activities are supported by the academic team or University Careers and Employability service.

How You Study

Students currently have free access to Adobe Creative Cloud software for the duration of their studies but will be required to cover additional costs specific to the study of fashion. These typically include costs for fabric, art materials, printing, exhibitions, and creating a final collection for the third year show. Students undertaking work placements will also need to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.

Module teaching is delivered through a range of practical, studio, seminar, and lecture-based sessions. In addition, students will be expected to attend supported workshops in which they can develop their practice on a self-directed study basis under the guidance of technical support staff. A library of Panopto technical demonstration videos enable students to work at their own pace.

Industry Links

The University has strong links with industry and students may have the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops with visiting experts from the fashion and wider creative industries.

Adobe Creative Cloud

All Fashion students currently have free access to Adobe Creative Cloud software for the duration of their studies.

Student as Producer

Student as Producer is a model of teaching and learning that encourages academics and undergraduate students to collaborate on research activities. It is a programme committed to learning through doing. The Student as Producer initiative was commended by the QAA in our 2012 review and is one of the teaching and learning features that makes the Lincoln experience unique.

Placements

Some courses offer students the opportunity to undertake placements. When students are on an optional placement in the UK or overseas or studying abroad, they will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation and meals costs. Placements can range from a few weeks to a full year if students choose to undertake an optional sandwich year in industry (where available). Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process.
