content and structure

This two-year course is the destination for the most creative, driven and original thinkers who will shape the contemporary menswear and design-based industries. Entry is based on a combination of formal qualifications, industry experience, portfolio, garments and demonstration of commitment through a considered study proposal.

 

We welcome applications from individuals who have either a First or Upper Second Class Honours degree in fashion, textiles or design-related subject areas, or the professional experience that demonstrates an equivalent knowledge and commitment to study for an Honours degree. 

 

Selection for interview will be made on the strength of a virtual portfolio that evidences individual motivation and how this is developed through the process of designing. Applicants invited for an interview will be set a project to complete and add to their portfolio as a new body of work that identifies future direction. As the technical process is integral to design students will be asked to bring garments and toiles to interview. 

 

Portfolios need to evidence a strong, unique style in response to a range of creative experiences. The ability to develop and apply personal research through accompanying sketchbooks and visual diaries is important. Critical engagement with a given brief and thoughtful, perceptive and responsible work will constitute an essential part of our evaluation. 

 

You will be asked to identify in writing, through the set project and the interview process a specific area of personal interest aimed at creating a positive contribution to the menswear industry that they envisage studying in depth while on the course. 

The level required by the University for this course is IELTS 6.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in each element. ​
