Within the discipline there are 4 separate areas of design specialisation that may be studied: knitwear, footwear, accessory design and millinery; specialism students follow the menswear curriculum and have teaching and technical courses in their specialist area. The course encourages students to develop their individual vision and design identity; technical courses relevant to the discipline and specialisms are integral elements to this process; professional presentation and portfolio development focus on communication skills and the ability to present work coherently; profile analysis and marketing clarify the students' aspirations through product, positioning and use of the media.
