Our ethos is based on the premise of promoting a creative and in-depth investigation of fashion in a social context. Irrespective of whether you engage in a practical exploration or a more theoretical, written exposition, you are encouraged to consider the critical and cultural context of your subject.

You have the opportunity to study a range of disciplines within the context of fashion and have the opportunity to specialise in a particular field such as styling, photography, editorial design and publishing, illustration, fashion and moving image, fashion marketing, forecasting, public relations, advertising, the fashion space, the social and cultural function of fashion, or can engage in an inter-disciplinary approach.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
If your first language is not English a certificate is required as evidence that you have an average IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent. If you are applying as an international student from a country outside the EU and require a visa to study in the UK, you will also need a minimum of 5.5 in each individual component.
You may be offered a place on a course on the condition that you improve your English language and study skills. We offer pre-sessional English language courses which can improve your IELTS score by a maximum of 1.0 and 0.5, or equivalent.
Your portfolio should include a broad selection of work that demonstrates your experience and abilities. It should also reflect your commitment to this subject area. You need to submit a personal statement with your application detailing your specialist area of interest and outlining your project proposal.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
As a specialist institution, the University for the Creative Arts gives you plenty of opportunity to be completely immersed in your chosen subject area. We offer a range of courses in art, architecture, communications, design and media across five campuses in the South East of England.
