Programme Specification

THE COURSE

Istituto Marangoni one-year foundation courses* prepare participants for entry into any of the three-year** undergraduate degree programmes, or three year courses, in the fashion or design fields. Over the course of the year participants are offered exciting new challenges that will improve their creative thinking, develop their broader fashion, design & art skills, and help them to identify where their true passion lies.

Additionally participants will develop a solid introduction into Istituto Marangoni teaching and learning methods and experience the intensive learning approach that is required in order to successfully progress onto one of the full-time fashion or design undergraduate programmes.

On each course specialist pathways provide an overview to key areas of the industry; for example in Fashion participants are introduced to fashion design, and concepts of fashion business, and fashion styling.

All foundation year programmes cover principle methods and techniques for exploration and research in fashion and design contexts, presentation skills, an analysis of fashion, design and other creative industries, as well as investigating the materials, tools, ways of working and techniques used in each area. Attention is given to developing an individual approach to creative expression and to conceptual thinking, which participants are able to develop further in their chosen undergraduate programme.

Academic discipline is at the heart of the syllabus and is supported with English language study skills (as required), concentrating on the communication of ideas in both verbal and written formats. Concluding with a portfolio of work, participants have the knowledge and skills they need to be able to make an informed choice on the undergraduate course that best suits their interests, passions and abilities.
