Course summary

Why study fashion communication and styling with us Ours is one of the most exciting fashion courses in London, with a comprehensive study of fashion’s past and future developments. We are one of the only courses where you will take part in the Degree Show, showcasing your work and increasing your professional network. You’ll get the opportunity to work with a wide range of media and visual communication methods that are central to the fashion industry. We take an innovative approach to the subject and you’ll be encouraged to explore a range of media, all the while considering and developing your own personal style and direction. Besides a theoretical and practical foundation, you’ll also gain essential abilities that will enhance your employability even beyond the fashion industry. We’re proud to be ranked fourth in London for Fashion (Guardian University Guide 2019). Understand practical fashion communication and develop your styling skills We strongly believe the best way to prepare you for a career in this exciting field is with hands-on experience throughout the course. That’s why you’ll get the opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge, like responding to live briefs set by industry experts, not just your lecturers. During your fashion communication degree you'll take part in a work placement or equivalent activity, allowing you to spend time in a live work environment in your chosen area of the fashion industry. Past students have worked with Hero magazine, Man About Town, Law and Wonderland, and they have also worked closely with editor Alex James Taylor. You will learn how to engage with and utilise modern communication technologies and facilities available through the University. Inductions, workshops and support facilities including digital software and a full range of studio and photographic equipment are available. Get the support you need We'll make sure you get the support you need to succeed. From your Personal Tutor to your Graduate Academic Assistant, each one has studied your subject and will provide the support you need based on their own experience. If you need a little help with writing, numeracy or library skills, we can help with that too. Students are also supported by specialised technicians, people who are experienced professionals in their fields, in the studio.
