Course content

MA Fashion Media and Communication has been created to produce leaders in the field of fashion media and communication. You’ll engage with new and emerging technologies to envision, plan and design virtual and mixed reality environments, AI and platform systems, hybridised fashion installations, event and curatorial interventions, as well as strategic and speculative initiatives. 

In addition to developing the necessary creative, technical and soft skills, you will strengthen your critical capacities, as well as learn contemporary organisational and workflow methods such as project management, system logistics, entrepreneurship, and social engagement. Divided into three sequential stages ‘Explore, Situate and Integrate’, the course curriculum is composed of a series of distinct practice-based units that blend individual and group work through a combination of rapid ‘sprint’ briefs and in-depth investigations. 

Equipped with the professional confidence and a diverse skillset that is fit for the demands of the 21st century, you will be ideally placed to enter the emerging areas of the creative industries and forge new modes of working through the cultivation of unique creative practicesthat can be applied in a range of contexts. Prospective roles include experiential design creative direction, product and service design as well as organisation and environmental design, design research, and strategic foresight. 

This course is based in Lime Grove in Shepherd's Bush, which is west of Holland Park and Notting Hill. Tucked away in a quiet street, our Lime Grove campus is a beautiful brick building with rustic windows and high ceilings. We are however, planning to move to a new single campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2023. This is part of a new development for London, prioritising culture, education and innovation, known as East Bank. 

London College of Fashion, UAL, leads the world in fashion business, media and design education. We’ve been nurturing creative talent for over a century, offering courses in all things fashion. With our philosophy of open and inclusive education, we encourage students to examine the past and question the present. To develop inventive, assertive ideas that challenge social and political agendas. And we give them the skills, opportunities – and above all, the freedom – to put those ideas into practice.

Please note, this course is subject to validation.
