You consider how the production of clothes and accessories has changed to include new material solutions and technical facilities, such as the Gerber suite at UCA Rochester and equally by adopting ideas from other fields of design, for example CAD solutions or digital presentations.
This specialism builds on the strengths of the British fashion industry, but situates it within the global market where creative outsourcing, the complex transport of materials and commodities and a variety of management cultures across the globe provide growing opportunities for our cohort of international postgraduates.
Throughout the course you combine technical expertise with conceptual thinking, learning through a variety of media, considering both the creative core and the progressive peripheries of fashion.
This course suits those who work, or aspire to work, within the extended field of the fashion system. This field is defined by the application of fashion's ever-changing search for expression and conceptualisation to other creative professions, as well as by the production of clothes and accessories, and theoretical reflection.
The course progresses from a taught mode to self-directed work. Throughout personal tutorials ensure a balance between formal instruction and individual supervision.
You are assessed on evidence of your knowledge, understanding through application of ideas, research and methodological structure and your technical and applied skills.Syllabus (14/15*)
You have the opportunity to work in an environment that is designed to mirror the experience of working in a contemporary design company or the creative related industries. Team work is a major part of the course and you gain experience of developing briefs, pitching to industry leaders and competing in competitions
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.
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.
