FdA Fashion Design and Marketing
During the first year, you are introduced to the basic principles and the inter-relationship between subject areas, which could include: fashion marketing, design and technology, the fashion design process, cultural studies, and information and communications.
At the end of the first year and across the summer period, you will be supported and encouraged to gain work experience within industry. Though not assessed, it is a part of the course that will enable you to form links with potential employers. To build on your potential work experiences, increased emphasis is placed on the industrial context of second year units, through simulated work based learning that will consolidate all of your previous learning from the first year.
To complete the second year, you will produce a personal development project, which provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate the range of knowledge and skills acquired on the course.
