Program description

Fashion BA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Explore your creativity and gain the experience and knowledge you need to succeed in fashion.

Tutored by experts in the field, you’ll work within real life fashion studios and network with leading names in the business. You’ll explore all aspects of the industry, from design and pattern cutting to research and consultancy – giving you all the skills you need to kick-start your career in fashion.

This exciting degree explores the dynamic field of fashion through visual research, design media, pattern cutting, draping and sewing. You’ll develop and explore your individual creativity, honing the techniques and knowledge you need to make your mark.

You’ll be taught through tutorials, workshops and contextual studies by our dedicated academic team and visiting lecturers, who’ll share their decades’ worth of experience working with iconic fashion houses including Balmain, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Pringle. We'll also invite major brands to share their knowledge with you. These invaluable networking opportunities will help you secure internship roles and future employment with industry leaders.

Throughout your degree you’ll study at The Cass – our renowned art and design centre situated in the heart of London. Here, you’ll experience a multi-disciplinary studio environment, where fashion, textiles and jewellery work together. This not only recreates the dynamic environment of haute-couture fashion houses, it also exposes you to the broader industry and the inspiring influence of these related disciplines.

You'll benefit from regular feedback through one-to-one and group tutorials, seminars and critiques. There are regular opportunities to collaborate with fellow students, as well as ongoing live projects, international industry competitions and the chance to participate in London and Paris fashion week, all of which will prepare you for your final collections, press show and future career.

What our students say

"The difference between London Met and many other universities is that the focus is on post-graduation employment. There is a great focus on practical skills for the workplace and the importance of workshops and hands on experience. Art and design based modules run alongside business studies to help us up-and-coming designers understand the real working-world. The highlight of my experience in London Met was the live project we undertook with Marks & Spencer. Not only was this an incredible experience at the time, but by maintaining this connection I am now employed by M&S only a few short months after my studies ended. It is this approach to practical skills and focus on careers that London Met should be commended for." Kate Woodhead, 2011
