FASHION DEGREES WITH A DIFFERENCE

Our exclusive two year degree courses have been created by working with over 50 fashion retail companies to include the very latest skills, knowledge and insights the Industry demands to ensure you secure a job role upon graduation.

FRA degrees with a difference include highly practical, industry focused content, an accelerated two year study programme and unrivaled industry involvement ranging from masterclasses to live practical projects, mentoring and a three-week industry experience. You can still benefit from a student finance loan, but will finish your degree in two thirds of the time with less cost.

You will need to register, provide a personal statement (up to 500 words) and two references from teachers or professionals. If you are worried about your personal statement or need guidance, UCAS have put together a tool to help you write it, click here to get started. Alternatively, UCAS also have video tutorials and further guidance here.

A single application is £13 and multiple applications are £24. You can find out more details on how to apply here.

If you would like more information please email info@fra.ac.uk. 

*These courses are due to be re-validated during the academic year 2020/21, so course content might change to align with current business needs to enhance employability on graduation.

Emily

Emily
BA (Hons) in Buying & Merchandising

Hello, my name is Emily and I am a final year Buying and Merchandising student. Without sounding like my mother, the last two years have gone so fast but it has definitely been the best time of my life (so far anyway). Although we have basically spent the last year in Lockdowns, this wasn't time wasted as the FRA has definitely kept me busy with course work, live projects and work experience. I'm sure you have lots of questions so please don't hold back!

Hey, I’m Jess and I’m currently a first year at the FRA studying fashion marketing and communications. The course itself so far has given me the opportunity to gain real life industry advice and knowledge. I am constantly inspired and engaged in new assignment briefs and live projects which already in my first year, I feel I have grown so much not only in my creative and academic knowledge, but as a young person. I couldn’t recommend the course highly enough.

Echo

Echo
Ba (Hons) in Business Management for Fashion

My name is Echo, I am in my second year as a Business Management student. My experience at the FRA has been really positive. I have felt completely respected by the tutors and lecturers and never made to feel like I was back at school, which is something I feel is hugely important for your university experience. I can’t wait to hear from anyone that wants to chat about their future uni experience as I know it can seem a pretty daunting prospect before you begin. Ask me whatever you feel like you need to know, I’m always here for a chat!
