Entry Requirements & Application

Entry requirements

Applicants must have an honours degree, preferably at 2:1 or above. All applicants must be 18 years or older by the start of the course. The chosen pathway must be stated at the application stage. Entry requirements for the individual options are as follows:


  • For the Media Business pathway applicants should hold a business-related degree or a general media degree. There is no requirement for a portfolio, however applicants are asked to provide a 1000-word statement that demonstrates their understanding of the focus of the course, the relevance of their background and their reason for applying.


  • Fashion Journalism applicants must provide a portfolio of work to demonstrate strong writing skills and a clear interest in the fashion sector. An English or humanities based degree is preferred (for example: English Literature, Philosophy or Art History). We will also consider applicants with general fashion or media degrees. 

Creative Direction:

  • For the Creative pathway applicants should have a design/visual-based degree in an appropriate subject, such as Graphic Design, Fine Art or Photography. A portfolio of work to demonstrate creative skills is essential. For aspiring fashion or beauty stylists, examples of ability in this area should be provided.


We welcome applications from those that have studied topics relevant to their chosen pathway - the MA Fashion Media Practice has a very specific focus for those pursuing careers in journalism, creative direction or the development/management of media companies.

Those with degrees in entirely unrelated subjects (such as science for example) are directed towards our MA Fashion Communication, which is specifically designed to introduce fashion at post-graduate level.

Alternatively, our Vogue Fashion Certificate is an introductory fashion course that could be used to develop a portfolio that may be suitable for entry to the MA Fashion Media Practice.
