Foundation Programme

Start your journey into higher education with the Condé Nast College Foundation Programme!

The Foundation Programme is an introductory course that will prepare students for further study in higher education. This level three (120 credits) pre-university course is suitable for UK, EU and International students interested in studying fashion related subjects at degree level at a later stage. Students will be introduced to key aspects of the creative industries with an emphasis on fashion and media. The programme will focus on developing transferable skills in research, academic practice and visual communication.

The foundation is suitable for school leavers interested in fashion related courses that are as yet unsure which area they would like to specialise in at degree level. It is also suitable for those that do not meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Fashion Communication or equivalent degree courses at other institutions. Study and research skills are embedded into all modules to ensure students are effectively prepared for the transition to higher education and support with degree applications is a priority. Successful and engaged students who complete the Foundation will considered for the BA (Hons) Fashion Communication should they wish to join this course.

Studying in our award-winning facilities in the heart of Central London, students will have unique access to the incredible roster of industry speakers in addition to their studies. Past speakers have included British Vogue Editor Edward Enninful, Tory Burch, Natalie Massenet, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria Beckham, and many more. They will also benefit from our unique staff to student ratio which guarantees a tailored learning experience from our outstanding academic team.
