Your own personal and professional development will be a key aspect throughout the course. The curriculum is delivered through credit framework units, one large unit of study per term supported by a smaller, often theoretical, unit. All units are explored through a project brief. Core skills are undertaken in specialist workshops equipped with state of the art machinery.
You will learn alongside the other courses such as FdA Cordwainers Accessories and FdA Fashion Design Technology for the more academic areas of study too. This will enable you to learn from eachother and gain invaluable insight into other disciplines within fashion design.
This interdisciplinary opportunity also occurs through project design research and critiques providing an enriching experience through greater understanding of the concept of the fashion industries. The course has strong industrial links and project briefs in both year 1 and year 2 are simulated work based learning units of study.
