The course is designed to take you on a progressive learning journey that begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of Fashion Promotion. During the first year, you will learn how to decipher briefs, and why good research unlocks the door to creativity. The modules are 100% coursework and blend research, theory and creative practice. This provides learners to explore their ideas from an academic platform. The second-year focusses on developing commercial awareness and professional skills through undertaking short term work placement or a live brief. The power of word and image are explored at a deeper and more complex level via two key modules: Digital Content Creation and Fashion Media PR. The final year provides an opportunity to create a body of work that reflects your chosen area of interest. Dissertations are offered in written or video formats which we believe give students a modern approach to this traditional academic requirement. The final major project focusses on your personal area of interest and expertise through a highly creative, industry-standard project which demonstrates your knowledge, skills and ability to potential employers.
