Virtual Open Day

Take part in one of our Virtual Open Days and discover what makes the Fashion Retail Academy unique. 

We design our Virtual Open Days so you can still experience the energy and vibrancy of the Fashion Retail Academy, but from the comfort of your own home. We run them in the same format as an on-site Open Day so you have the chance to listen to our staff and tutors, join in a session and ask questions any questions that you have.
