For prospective fashion students who haven’t yet decided which part of the industry they’d like to work within, there are lots of undergraduate fashion degrees which offer a broad introduction to different aspects of the fashion sector. Meanwhile, for those who’ve already identified their ideal fashion career, there are also lots of more specialized fashion degrees. For example, you could choose an entire degree focusing on fashion photography, fashion design, fashion management or marketing, fashion PR or journalism, fashion buying – or another part of the industry.

If you choose to study a general fashion course, you will learn about each stage involved in the fashion design process, from initial concept to the realization of a catwalk or store collection and the creation of an accompanying PR or advertising campaign. Possible modules included in your degree may include pattern-cutting and garment production, illustration, concept development and communication, drawing, trend forecasting, and fashion business and marketing.

Entry requirements for fashion degrees

Most fashion courses accept students with various academic backgrounds and do not require grades in specific subjects, just an overall good diploma of secondary education. However, you will usually be asked to submit a portfolio of your work (such as examples of drawings and concepts), for which the requirements may vary depending on the course focus and the institution. You may be invited to attend an interview and/or write an application letter or essay outlining your aptitude and ambitions.
