BA (Hons) Fashion Promotion enables students to explore creative professional practice, technological knowledge and theoretical understanding in preparation for a variety of careers within industry.
Here are a few points taken from the external examiner’s Report that explain how:
• The course is producing multi-taskers and highly capable professional students.
• The focus on entrepreneurial skills and divergent thinking is clear to see and the team are continuing to nurture employable and relevant graduates.
• Students have been carefully guided in the production of engaging and innovative portfolios, which are well edited and executed. The work feels "industry ready" and the inclusion from national competitions is commendable.
Fashion Promotion as a course is very broad, which enables you to try different disciplines from marketing, to photography and styling. This makes it easier to choose the one which is best suited to you.
