Fashion (Womenswear)

MA Fashion Womenswear aims to develop designers who are interested in responding to contemporary conditions through practice and critical engagement. With an emphasis on research, traditional approaches combined with digital and media technologies will provide opportunities for you to develop innovative solutions for the development and dissemination of your practice, which complement and challenge the notion of a fashion 'collection'.

Entry requirements

You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification.
