Course summary

Course overview

The Graduate Diploma in Fashion is structured to support designers, equipping them to work in the international market. The course offers fashion graduates, or those from closely related disciplines, the opportunity to take a fresh look at their work. You will specialise in Womenswear or Menswear, with opportunities to explore other specialisms such as knit or print.

The course will support your creative development with design, technical and professional skills. Studies on the course are project-based, allowing you to experiment and redefine yourself in a creative environment. Through its tutorial structure, the course emphasises breadth and depth of research and an innovative approach to design. The curriculum will also introduce you to visual communication approaches, the articulation of design ideas and the development of presentation skills. You will graduate with a portfolio and realised design work which will support your progression into postgraduate study or entry into employment in the fashion industry.

During your studies, you will be guided by current practitioners in the field of fashion. This will allow you to benefit from the learning and teaching methods which have produced some of the world’s leading fashion design professionals. Graduates from the course go on to work across a wide range of careers in fashion. Many graduates also go on to postgraduate study, including master’s degrees in Fashion and Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion, Goldsmiths, Parsons School of Design and Polimoda.
