Course summary

Studying fashion marketing will intellectually and creatively challenge you. The course, which blends a combination of reading, writing, and creating, will refine your skills and enable you to become a critical and creative thinker. Understanding contemporary and historical discourse combined with in-depth research will underpin your creative thinking. At the University of Leeds, your final year dissertation is as important as your final year project. Throughout your studies, you'll learn how to factor in issues of sustainability, diversity, inclusion and employability whilst planning, researching and producing work. Your project choices could involve:

  • Devising a new brand strategy for a fashion label to trend forecasting.
  • Developing ideas for innovative fashion products.
  • Delivering an exciting PR or social media campaign.
Our guest industrial speakers and optional Year in Industry will help to equip you with the expertise needed to enter the world of the creative industries. Throughout the course, you’ll also have the opportunity to choose optional modules in the School of Design in a range of related subjects in addition to Discovery modules from across the University. These include popular subject choices such as business management and sustainability. The School of Design also offers all our students the opportunity to participate in the Study Abroad scheme or our very successful placement year (Year in Industry) between seconds and third year.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

Art Foundation course We welcome Art Foundation course students. However, the qualification is not a requirement for entry and doesn’t usually count towards entry requirements, which are based on A-levels and equivalent qualifications. In exceptional cases, if you have not studied Art and Design at A level, we may consider an Art Foundation course in combination with grades ABB at A level. Extended Project Qualification: If you’re taking the EPQ, we may make you an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. In this case that would be BBB, plus EPQ grade A.
