During the degree, you will be encouraged to seek work experience opportunities and partake in educational visits and international trips. Collaborative projects and placement opportunities are encouraged during your study to establish yourself as an emerging designer within this growing and fast paced industry.
On this specialist programme we provide you with the opportunity to explore all aspects of fashion design, innovation, and enterprise. Learning the fundamental skills of design practice and industrial skills of the future. The supportive experience of learning in our institution will nurture your ability to take risks and develop your creative identity.

Access to tutorial guidance and subject specialist technicians will be at the heart of your experience, giving you the opportunity to explore modern textiles and cutting-edge digital technologies that will enhance your skillset and creative exploration.

The course will encourage you to investigate ways for you as a practitioner to communicate with different fashion markets and methods to engage consumers with your product – this will be done through exciting modules and live projects that consider the journey of an idea from conceptualisation to hanger. Emphasis on customer, trend and communication are embedded effectively throughout the curriculum, with the circular economy and sustainability being a core factor of all our working projects.
