Overview

The BA(Hons) Fashion course recognises the uniqueness of the individual and celebrates the sublime art of making and creative risk taking.

The journey from design to shop window or fashion catwalk is fascinating. You’ll discover the complexities of buying, selling and promotion – and the need to be entrepreneurial. A major strength of this course is its position within a specialist arts, design and media institution with the potential for you to study alongside other creative and cultural disciplines.

During the course you will build an appropriate portfolio of skills, which supports the development of individual practice, and informs your decision regarding the selection of a specialist named award.

You may choose to complete your degree in one of the following named awards:

BA (Hons) Fashion (Design)
BA (Hons) Fashion (Design Technology)
BA (Hons) Fashion (Menswear)
BA (Hons) Fashion (Product Design)

Through the course individuals will experience challenges and new possibilities whilst seeking unpredictable solutions to concept origination and product development.
