Recruiter, M&S Clothing and Home
It’s been a great two years. The best part of the course was the industry placement; from that, I got a job with M&S! I’d definitely recommend the Fashion Retail Academy. You get great industry insight from the lecturers, not many other places have lecturers that are fresh out of head office.
BA (Hons) Buying & Merchandising for Fashion
My time at the Fashion Retail Academy has been extremely valuable to me. What sets the Academy apart from the rest is the industry connections: from industry mentors, work placements, job and intern opportunities. Without these, I wouldn’t have had the skills, experience or confidence needed to be in industry. Thank you FRA!
BA (Hons) Marketing & Communications
My first year at the Fashion Retail Academy has opened my eyes to the fashion industry and I’ve learnt so much already. I’ve met amazing new friends and tutors, and it’s all in central London - the heart of fashion.
BA (Hons) Fashion Business
I loved every minute of my time at the Fashion Retail Academy. Over the years, I have had some amazing opportunities and gained experience from well-known fashion brands. This has allowed me to go straight into the industry as a BAA alongside my course. It’s my dream job and I have the FRA to thank!
