We’re excited to welcome you to the Fashion Retail Academy, so you can see for yourself what makes us the best place to study fashion and kickstart your career. 

Our open days include a presentation from our Principal, Lee Lucas, or our Director of Academic Excellence, Tracy Pritchard, as well as talks about each of our courses.

There is an exhibition about our new campus, Electra House, and a virtual reality experience so that you can get a feel for the facilities there, including lecture theatres, the fashion design wing and library.

Tutors, alumni and current students will be available to answer your questions. You can also speak to members of our key support teams, including the Wellbeing team, the Careers & Progression team and Fees & Funding.

When we aren't able to hold our in-person events, we run our Virtual Open Days instead. They feature talks and presentations like our in-person open days, with individual, course-specific talks.
