Foundation Programme

The Condé Nast 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 home, 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.

International students will have the opportunity to develop their English language skills at the outset through a short period of intensive study followed by weekly classes in the first term.
