Content

First Year: Practical classes, workshops and lectures provide a fundamental and practical knowledge of design, fashion product development, textiles and fashion marketing that underpin the clothing and fashion industry. Practical projects allow for individual creativity and personal development, whilst consolidating subject areas.

Second Year: Expanding on the foundations of year 1, year 2 reinforces the commercial context, whilst further developing skills and knowledge in CAD, design and development, textiles and fashion buying. The course has strong industry links with some courses delivered as live industry projects.

Third Year: Students develop independent learning through inter-linked projects that further enhance their creative and problem solving skills, whilst embedding technical expertise and commercial product development with live industry projects. Students spend the second semester in industry which contextualises their learning in an industry setting.

Fourth Year: Each student determines and negotiates their individual honours project that reflects the diverse and contemporary areas of the clothing and fashion industry. A global context is further explored in the honours year with students studying future textiles, global fashion management and entrepreneurship.
