Level 4 Diplomas
When you study a Level 4 diploma, you'll earn a nationally-recognised qualification in just one year. They offer one of the quickest routes to a specialist career in the fashion industry. 88% of our students go on to employment or further education after completing their course.
Level 4 courses are entirely assessed through coursework, so you don't take any exams. They're also significantly cheaper than university - in fact, if you're 18 or under, your study is fully funded so you don't need to pay anything at all.
As part of the programme, you'll complete three weeks of work experience with a major fashion brand, providing a fantastic boost to your CV. Many of our students have been offered full-time roles once they finish their courses because of their hard work on placement.
We also offer a Fast Track Buying & Merchandising diploma for adults aged 19+. We'll teach you everything you need for an entry-level role in either department in just 22 weeks. It’s perfect for those looking to improve their skills, or retrain in a new area, whilst continuing part-time work.
