Course summary

The Fashion degree at USW creates the leaders of tomorrow’s fashion industry, a group of professionals who can respond to the industry’s challenges. Fashion design at USW offers experience of the fashion industry beyond the university environment and sets a culture, skillset and attributes for life after graduation.

You will work with partners from the industry and be supported to undertake internships, work experience and placements. We are currently partnering with local, national and international brands to connect USW with a global industry. You will compete in national and international design competitions, placing your work on a global stage. USW Graduates are now employed by Debenhams, Harrods, Joules and Peacocks, amongst others.
