ba (hons) degree with one year sandwich*
Placing students in a work environment is a key factor in enabling them to apply their knowledge of purely academic concepts to a real-world context.
On the sandwich course, the first two years of study in fashion design, fashion business and fashion styling are followed by a third year of work in a fashion firm, after which students return to the school to complete the fourth and final year of study. The work period involves a minimum of 36 weeks in a company in the fashion industry, working in close contact with industry professionals of the industry. At the end of the 36 weeks, in addition to a better knowledge of the working environment, students will gain a reference from the work provider, which adds more value to their training.
Those students who decide to choose a sandwich course, will be able to leave the school with a CV that already includes work experience in a company within the industry as well as giving them the opportunity to start building a professional network.
