About the course

This course has been created in response to the growth in fashion and allied industries (including styling and promotion). This MA has a broad academic and industry appeal. For overseas students the UK continues to be held in high esteem for two aspects of design: rigorous teaching methodology and creativity– this MA will draws upon both.

Employers need creative thinkers who can synthesis ideas, design and the commercial pressures of the market place. This synthesis is central to the thinking and curriculum outline proposed. “Creative higher education institutions have a particular intellectual property (IP) profile; they rarely produce many patents but are nonetheless major generators of IP.”
