Mikey Neale, BA (Hons) Fashion Media & Marketing

"The teaching staff couldn’t be more suited to the course if they tried. Due to the nature of the course and the spectrum that it covers, it works perfectly that all the staff come from a variety of backgrounds, but not only that, their extensive knowledge covers so much more than just fashion, which is so important for drawing references to your work. Plus the team will also focus on every individual pupil and their interest; they are always reading, watching and researching and will constantly send you articles, videos and books that relate to your work, which is very hard to come across at other universities.

Studying Fashion Media & Marketing has opened my eyes to the world of fashion even more than before, by putting on trips to fashion weeks including Paris and London, but I was also allowed to undertake my own research trip to Tokyo during my studies in order to push my work forward.

A massive advantage that the team of lecturers offer you is their contacts, bringing them into the college to deliver exclusive workshops, including Vogue photographers, GQ stylists, art directors from top magazines, Topshop buyers, fashion filmmakers, marketing specialists and so much more. These lectures and workshops benefit your work so much because it allows you to gain industry insights and learn how the professionals do their jobs.

Another benefit of the staff on this programme is the fact that they are all still working in industry, which means they’re constantly working on new jobs, and they will share their experiences with you and help you gain employment once you have finished your studies, or even introduce you to someone to undertake an internship during your degree."

Rhiannon Jones, BA (Hons) Fashion Media & Marketing

"I feel privileged to have studied such a diverse and varied degree at Plymouth College of Art.

It has been interesting seeing my skills grow and my creative style mature, resulting in a body of work that I am extremely proud of. It has also been amazing to see the contrasting, dynamic work across all my peers. I think that seeing such variety and creativity come from individuals on the same course speaks volumes of the creative freedom and interpretation that this course allows."

Joshua Lyle, BA (Hons) Fashion Media & Marketing

"Studying Fashion Media & Marketing for three years has honestly been the most enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Not only have the lecturing team allowed me to develop as a professional, they have taught me new skills in marketing and image creation, and given me the experience of learning from visiting lecturers during workshops, as well as finding new ways to explore how I approach my work as a creative.

I could not have asked for a more supportive and passionate group of staff to give their time as well as their varied and amazing knowledge, which has allowed me to create unique and inspired work that I am truly proud of. Being able to ask for help, pick their brains for ideas, as well as have them dedicate their own time to help on shoots, essay writing - and even helping with personal issues. The team do everything they can to help students succeed.

I have loved every day of the course these past three years, and I am sad that it has come to a close. Without the team at Plymouth College of Art, I would not have developed so well in my photography, would not have come out of my shell, and gained confidence in both myself and the concepts I have and the work created from them.

The team don’t just create an amazing working environment for the students, they create a family."

Kate Harvey, BA (Hons) Fashion Media & Marketing

"Fashion Media & Marketing is such a wonderfully diverse programme. For me, someone who has always adored fashion and grew up reading the glossy pages of high fashion magazines, this is the perfect course. Although I have always enjoyed journalism, we are being equipped with all the skills necessary for multiple professions in the industry.

Whilst gaining this varied skill set, we also have a great deal of support from tutors who are more than willing to share their first-hand experiences and offer advice. On top of that, the college itself is full of fantastic facilities and technology which is accessible to all students."
