At Staffordshire University, the fashion course offers students the chance to develop practical and technical skills used in real-life fashion design. The course covers areas such as pattern cutting and computer aided design. Students also gain a solid understanding of design theory, exploring the history of fashion, fashion business and the wider cultural context of fashion.
Negotiated Studies modules encourage students to further pursue their personal career ambitions in their chosen specialism, a rarity in most fashion courses. Technical workshops including digital fabric printing, laser cutting, wood, metal, ceramics, plaster and plastics, ensure creative vision is not restricted.
Staffordshire University also allows students to work on live industry projects for real companies, allowing them to gain work experience and boosting their portfolio.
