With support from our experienced staff (all industry practitioners or researchers) you will be encouraged to create interdisciplinary collaborations and take up work placements, both within the University and through our strong links with the Scottish textiles and fashion industry.
You will also investigate the connection between clothing, well-being and identity, by working with our leading Diversity Network initiative to challenge standardised ways that designers consider and celebrate the end consumer.
We also maintain key links with the National Museum of Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland.
You’ll be working within a vibrant art college environment, with access to all the facilities you need to produce innovative design.
MA (one-year) and MFA (two-year) students produce a body of practical and written work on an agreed topic. Both years integrate studio work, professional practice, theoretical and written studies, as well as a lecture/seminar series focusing on media and material cultures. Set assignments will assess fashion design, experimental pattern cutting, drawing, life drawing and research skills.
Professional practice elements prepare you for employment in the fashion industry.
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.
A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a relevant subject area. Any appropriate professional experience will also be considered.
This programme requires the submission of a portfolio and a study proposal.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
