Fashion Design (including a Foundation Year) at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

BA Fashion Design provides a professional environment, which invites students to engage with innovative approaches to design. You will study in a climate of fast-paced and challenging industry-based projects aimed at developing creative responses. Ultimately the course aims to nurture independent designers who are strongly motivated to develop their own individual identity. Our ambition is for graduates to be 21st-century designers and creative thinkers, highly prized by the creative industries that contribute considerably to economic growth. The activities are predominately studio based, and skills workshops strongly underpin practice-based make-and-manufacture activities. Key lectures and seminars support learning and speakers from industry, and field trips to Paris and London provide industry relevance to theory and practice-based modules. You will develop an individual visual language, and will be able to deal effectively with the innovative technological demands of an intensively competitive global marketplace. Your learning will be supported within a setting that promotes critical intellectual growth, while provoking creative challenges and experiences, embracing fashion design as a viable career pathway. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Once the Foundation Year has been completed successfully, you can then go on to complete your degree.
