We'll support you in developing a strong professional network that will aid you throughout your career. You'll receive briefs and projects from brands that reflect the current industry landscape in order to gain real-world experience and develop valuable professional skills.
VISITING INDUSTRY EXPERTS
Throughout your course, you'll attend masterclasses and lectures from Visiting Industry Experts (VIEs). Our VIEs come from a range of top brands including Alexander McQueen, ASOS, Sweaty Betty and H&M.
You will be set tasks and projects that reflect the current requirements of the fashion industry. VIEs will provide you with feedback for your work and explain how their brand might react in a real-world situation. This helps give context to your studies, putting theoretical knowledge into practice.
You will also develop key professional skills including time management, prioritisation and teamwork.
THREE-WEEK work placement
During your course, you'll be given the opportunity to complete a three-week placement to gain valuable industry experience. You'll be assigned an industry manager who'll provide you with tasks to complete, giving you an understanding of a specific job role. You may be asked to work remotely or in the office, alone or as part of a small team. In some instances, you may also be asked to work across multiple areas of a business.
This three-week work placement is designed to help you develop practical and professional skills in order to boost your CV and put your theoretical knowledge into practice. Previous students have completed placements with Fortnum & Mason, Next, John Lewis, Whistles and Harvey Nichols.
