Course summary

MA Fashion Design at the University of Salford has been designed in response to national and international demand for a creative and industry-focused postgraduate degree. The aim of this programme is to respond to those needs and produce graduates who have a strong, conceptual and holistic understanding of fashion design.

The MA builds on the success of the highly-rated BA (Hons) Fashion Design, which is recognised as a leading fashion education programme. It was listed by Business of Fashion in 2019 as one of the top 22 fashion design courses globally, and is ranked 11th in the UK in the Guardian League Tables (2019).

You will:

  • Develop a broad range of skills in scenic and set design
  • Learn to analyse and interpret scripts and generate and evaluate visual concepts
  • Gain the experience to produce three-dimensional scale models and props in order to test and communicate concepts.

WHAT ABOUT AFTER UNI?

Upon graduation students would typically apply for jobs within fashion design or mayset up their own brands/businesses or entrepreneurial ventures.

Graduates may also continue their research through a practice-based PhD.

CAREER LINKS

The programme team works with a number of key organisations and companies each year including the Maxmara Fashion Group based in Italy, H&M based in Stokholm, B-Bax based in China and a range of locally based fashion brands in Manchester.

At the same time you will benefit from our membership with the British Fashion Council. We are able to take part in important competitions with significant fashion brands as well as being invited to showcase portfolio work at industry events. We have won the British Fashion Council Best Colleges Portfolio award many times in recent years and this is testament to our industry-ready portfolio of work.

Our contacts within industry provide you with significant opportunities to develop key links and professional insight into working environments, developments and expectations.

In China we have partnership agreements that provide students with unique employment prospects, including teaching and working with design brands whilst establishing their own fashion label.
