BA (Hons) Fashion Communication Programme structure
The programme is purposefully broad, allowing students to explore a variety of areas within fashion before deciding on a clear area of focus for their final projects in the last two terms. Each year of study also includes an elective module, providing the opportunity to focus on a personal area of interest. The summer term at the end of the first year includes an industry placement, which can be organised by the student* to take place in any relevant area of fashion and in any location. In the ‘Fashion Futures’ module students will examine possible and expected developments in the fashion industry in relation to their own career development, creating a relevant portfolio intended to assist with securing employment in their chosen field. Careers support is a significant aspect of the college and the programme and students will continue to be supported after graduation.
*The College will provide extensive support to assist with finding suitable work experience, however part of the module assessment is for students to search for and secure a suitable placement themselves. This is to facilitate learning and professional development and job seeking skills. Should they wish, international students can arrange a placement in their home country.
