Course summary

On this course you'll have the freedom to express your creativity in diverse ways, by exploring innovative fashion and textile design solutions that respond to the needs of contemporary consumers. Working in our well-equipped studios and purpose-built facilities, you’ll develop your understanding of the fashion design process, combining the latest digital technologies with traditional manual skills, in line with industrial standards. You’ll develop creative and practical skills that enable you to develop beautiful, responsibly produced, and innovative fashion and textile products. This practical experience is balanced with a range of theoretical learning that informs fashion research, as well as fashion's relationship to historical context, cultural practices, social trends and values, and ideological assumptions. After the first year of common study you’ll choose a fashion and textile specialism, in either menswear or womenswear and in either structured or printed textiles.As an interdisciplinary school, we’re able to offer you a wide variety of optional modules, allowing you to tailor your degree to your interests and career aspirations. You’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills which are highly regarded by employers across all sectors, including creative and critical thinking, problem solving and presentation skills, as well as design development, product research and analysis. You’ll be equipped for a broad range of prestigious employment, enterprise or postgraduate opportunities, particularly due to the emphasis on the role that fashion and textile innovation – when blended with digital technologies – can play in responding to the future requirements and challenges of the fashion industry.Our popular Year in Industry offers you the chance to gain first-hand experience of the variety of roles available in fashion and is a great way to prepare for a career in this fast-paced industry. As an alternative to this, students also have the opportunity to take a study abroad year at partner institutions across the world.
