Professional practice is embedded within all of our programmes. Throughout your studies, you will have the opportunity to develop the key professional, transferable skills for employability in the creative industries and potentially work in partnership with other sectors locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.

In close consultation with Industry Liaison Groups, who help inform the development of our higher education curriculum, we have placed real-world experience at the heart of our BA (Hons) Fashion Communication course.

This is a dynamic programme that responds in real-time to shifts in the fashion industry. Your learning environment will be enriched with an enviable programme of client briefs, competitions, work placements and guest speakers.

You will work with industry professionals to create visual branding, professional lookbooks and moving image projects, developing your online marketing skills and helping you pursue an original approach to fashion communication.
