Regent's University London
Fashion: Buying & Merchandising
Buying and merchandising are specialist retail functions, which lie at the heart of a fashion brand’s ability to respond effectively to fast changing fashion trends.
You will gain the insights and practical knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a fashion buying or merchandising career.
Industry knowledge and skills are embedded across modules and are achieved in different ways. These include learning about textiles and clothing manufacture, competitor shopping and analysing trends and sales patterns to make commercial decisions. You will develop and strengthen many skills including numeracy for buying and merchandising, presentation, team working and negotiation.
We require an Honours Degree with a minimum 2:1 ideally not in a purely practice based subject (with the exception of Fashion Design or Textiles, which are directly relevant) from a recognised institution. Please contact email@example.com if you are unsure if your degree subject qualifies.
We also require a GCSE or equivalent in Maths at a minimum of grade C.
Other equivalent international qualifications as recommended by the National Academic Recognition Centre will be accepted. If you are unsure as to the comparability of your qualification, please contact us.
Applicants who meet the minimum academic requirements will be invited to participate in a telephone interview before an admissions decision is confirmed.
