Course overview:

Based in our fashion studios – which are kitted out with industry-standard facilities for design, drawing, pattern-cutting, pressing and sewing – you’ll be working within a close-knit hub of like-minded creative individuals, simulating the industry’s collaborative workroom vibe.

Our course will also equip you with a firm foundation in fashion history and theory, so you’ll learn about a range of fashion and design concepts, and understand how these relate to your own work and creative thinking. An emphasis on drawing and illustration will help you professionally, communicate your ideas to industry professionals, and the compulsory work placement during your second year will give you the opportunity to put it all into practice and discover the area of fashion that most appeals to you.

Above all, this highly creative course will develop you professionally and teach you a range of transferable skills that can lead to careers in many different areas of the creative industries.

Fashion at UCA Epsom enjoys excellent relationships with a range of household name fashion brands, and our students work with these companies year after year. You’ll especially benefit from our strong industry links in Year 2, where you’ll secure your own work placement. You’ll also receive the opportunity to work on live project briefs set by leading fashion companies such as Red or Dead, Warehouse and Ralph Lauren, as well as enter competitions with them throughout your degree.
