Course summary

The Foundation Year in Fashion is offered as an entry route to a fashion degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study.

Gain essential technical skills while we prepare you for a stimulating career in the fashion industry, whether you want to be a designer, maker, stylist, technician, journalist or PR consultant. As well as technique, we will equip you with the confidence and independence you need to engage with the fashion world and move forward in your chosen aspect of the industry.

You will enrol on a four-year course which includes the one-year foundation year. The number of students who progress to degree study is very high. The Foundation Year in Fashion is taught in our excellent studios and facilities at our Hendon campus by the same lecturing staff who teach on our degree courses. You are taught in small group seminars, workshops and lectures.

How is the BA Fashion Design taught?

The Fashion Design programme is primarily delivered in our studios and workshops. Students are offered various tutorials taking the form of one to ones or small groups to explore research and design development, pattern cutting and garment manufacture including fittings, fashion illustration and portfolio development, including Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop skills.

Lectures are an integral part of the programme, providing a valuable platform for students to contextualise their practice, further develop their research skills and explore essential fashion and design theory.

Assessment

You will be assessed through practical design projects and written assignments. Your design projects will be stage-assessed throughout the creative process, looking at research, design, garment creation and presentation. The course is intensive and we place particular emphasis on good attendance as part of our assessment criteria.

Careers

Middlesex has strong links with art and design employers. Our industry partners sponsor final year students and give visiting lectures. Your work will be viewed by a large number of industry employers when they attend our final year degree show. Some students may also be specially selected for our annual press show, judged by high profile figures in the fashion industry. Previous judges include Louise Gray, JJS Lee and James Long.
