Contact hours: Years 1 and 2: 16-18 hours per week. Year 3: no less than 16 hours per week.
You'll be taught by designers, illustrators, stylists, buyers, photographers and brand experts who continue to work in this sector alongside teaching. They often have work showcased in international publications, exhibitions and industry events – and their knowledge and experiences ensure your classes are shaped by the most current industry practices and reflect the fast-changing agendas of the fashion industry.
You'll also be allocated a personal tutor, who'll meet you on a one-to-one basis at various stages throughout the year to provide you with guidance and support your personal and professional development.
Plus, you'll benefit from regular guest speakers – from designers to PRs. Past speakers have included the likes of Michael Ward, Managing Director at Harrods; Ellie-Grace Frost, Designer at Louis Vuitton and Jessica Bumpus, Fashion Journalist and former Digital Fashion Editor at Vogue.
Throughout the course, you'll be expected to undertake extra reading, personal research, reflection and peer review, preparing work for workshops, working collaboratively with students and tasks to enhance your technical experimentation with software or tasks for the continued development of camera and photography skills.
Our location in central London offers significant advantages to fashion students, due to its close proximity to a wide range of museums, galleries, industry events, department stores, designer stores and material suppliers. The fashionable Marylebone High Street is a ten-minute walk away, where you'll find retailers offering luxury and high middle-market fashion and accessories alongside charity shops that stock second-hand designer garments and accessories. Beyond this, Oxford Street, Bond Street and Regent Street can be used as active research zones throughout your study.
