Are you thinking of applying to study at the Fashion Retail Academy, but you're not sure of the next steps? Attending one of our Open Days is a great way to learn more about our industry-leading fashion college. We run regular Open Day events throughout the year, and we design them specifically to answer any questions you have and get you excited about studying with us!
Tour our central London campus building
Our modern building can be found right next to Soho, just a few minutes from Tottenham Court Road station. We're also very close to Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street - so we're right in the heart of London's fashion district!
Our central location means we're very easy to access by public transport. We have lots of bus stops nearby, as well as Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Street and Goodge Street underground stations. Coming to an Open Day is a great opportunity to test out your future route between home and college.
During the day, you'll get to look around our building and its specialist fashion facilities including our extensive library, digital suites, sewing studios and design rooms, visual merchandising studio and Higher Education Hub. It can be tricky to imagine the reality of something online, so we encourage you to come and check out our campus for yourself, see where you’ll be studying and get inspired!
Meet our course leaders and tutors
At the Fashion Retail Academy, we consider our tutors and course leaders to be our greatest asset. Before becoming teachers, many of them worked in the fashion retail industry themselves - and many still do! They come from areas like design, buying and visual merchandising. They've travelled the world and worked alongside some of the world’s most-recognised brands. As a result, they have a huge amount of knowledge and experience to share with our students.
By coming to an Open Day, you’ll ease any nerves by putting faces to names. You’ll find out more about your syllabus and the teaching style of our tutors.
