Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

This is a top-up version of our Fashion BA (Hons) degree. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and is for those who have a foundation degree, Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification, or those wishing to study the final year of their degree in London.

You’ll be taught through tutorials, workshops and contextual studies by our dedicated academic team and visiting lecturers, who’ll share their decades’ worth of experience working with iconic fashion houses including Balmain, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Pringle.

**More about this course**

We'll invite major brands to share their knowledge with you. These invaluable networking opportunities will help you secure future internship roles and employment with industry leaders.

Throughout the year, you’ll study at The Cass – our renowned art and design centre situated in the heart of London. Here, you’ll experience a multi-disciplinary studio environment where fashion, textiles and jewellery work in close proximity. This not only recreates the dynamic environment of haute-couture fashion houses, it also exposes you to the broader industry and the inspiring influence of these related disciplines. You'll benefit from regular feedback through one-to-one and group tutorials, seminars and critiques.

There are regular opportunities to collaborate with fellow students as well as ongoing live projects, international industry competitions and the chance to visit and participate in industry fashion events.

As a final year student, you will have the opportunity to carry out an in-depth exploration of a topic of your choice in your dissertation. Our dissertation students all belong to a themed dissertation studio, which offers a supportive group context for planning and writing your dissertation, and specific academic tutoring about how to manage the project.
