Fashion journalists communicate breaking news, future trends and industry issues to the public. Whether reporting from a front seat at a fashion show, interviewing a celebrity in a new retail campaign or uncovering what really happens in sweatshops of developing countries, the life of a fashion journalist is stimulating and fast-paced.

This dynamic and highly creative course encourages you to explore the vast landscape of fashion and lifestyle media, whilst equipping you with the journalistic skills needed to become a versatile and creative fashion communicator.

Our School of Fashion has been ranked in the top 20 by The Guardian’s 2017 university league table.

Course overview:

This course’s unique philosophy revolves around the idea of the voice – training and finding the voice in Year One, developing and widening that voice in Year Two, and expressing and promoting each voice’s unique attributes in Year Three.

You’ll develop skills through individual and collaborative work in both studio and industry environments, including a work placement and live project briefs.

Over the three years, you’ll build a portfolio of work of various styles and techniques, across a range of markets and communication platforms. The course culminates in a graduate portfolio demonstrating each individual’s skills and interests.
