Course summary

- Express yourself through the creation of new fashion narratives and contemporary outcomes.- Learn innovative fashion management and communication techniques and effective academic methodologies.- Enhance your employability by networking and learning from visionary and sector-leading practitioners.- Experience real-world enterprise projects that drive your employability.- Develop your knowledge of the fashion industry and its connections to lifestyle and society. If you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) courses, or you’d like extra preparation before starting degree-level study, we recommend you join the foundation year – which has been designed to encourage exploration and experimentation. You'll develop a new sense of innovation and transparency for future industry practice by exploring sustainability, socio-cultural factors, consumption and responsibility.**How you learn**We support risk-taking to help you to devise new ideas, business models and fluid ways of working. You'll develop a portfolio and transferable skills which lead to various pathways in the fashion industry. Tutors and industry specialists help you to investigate, develop and realise your ideas – from media creation to brand strategy, trend forecasts to fashion app development. In the first ‘induction’ module you’ll learn to work confidently and creatively with a wide range of different materials. In the second ‘project’ module you’ll be taught by tutors from the BA (Hons) course supported by foundation tutors.**You’ll learn through:**group and individual tutorialsinteractive lecturesseminarspractical activity-based sessionsdemonstrationsapplied industry (live) projectscreative thinking workshopsstudio-based project workwork review sessionsstudy tripspeer group activitiesBlackboard online learning portalpresentations and feedback sessionsself-directed study**Applied learning**Work placementsYou’ll have the opportunity to arrange a single or multiple work placement/s in between your second and third years of the full course. Placements give you real-world experience to prepare you for your future career. Previous students have worked with Dazed Media, SHOWstudio, Nike, Hugo Boss and Urban Outfitters. You may also be able to work or study abroad – with the possibility of funding (subject to the UK’s continued participation in the Erasmus+ programme following the Brexit transition period).Live projectsDuring the course, you'll be introduced to a variety of practical industry tasks and activities in collaboration with contemporary fashion brands and practitioners. Students have previously worked on exclusive live projects with brands such as John Lewis, Adidas, USP Trend, Weekday and French Connection, and have been awarded cash incentives or work placement offers upon completion. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in industry-recognised events and engagements with Graduate Fashion Week and the British Fashion Council.Field tripsWe endeavour to go on study trips and visits in the UK and abroad – with free travel and accommodation for all mandatory field trips on the course. These could include workshops, design conferences or visits to practitioners’ studios, museums and special collections. You may further enhance your studies with optional field trips, though these will incur additional costs. Previous trips have included exclusive, behind-the-scenes invitations to the headquarters of Dazed Media, WGSN, Gucci and Marc Jacobs, in addition to visiting leading fashion, communication and design museums.CompetitionsOur students are encouraged to enter national and international competitions.
