A one-year conversion course for students who have a 2:2 or higher first degree in an area unrelated to fashion management, the course emphasises the importance of sustainability and ethics within the fashion industry when responding to consumer behaviour and demand. Business and management theories are explored and combined with practical applications.
It also has a range of specialist academics with advanced knowledge and experience pertinent to the disciplines of the course. Throughout the course your personal and professional development is informed through the UAL Creative Attributes Framework (CAF). This framework emphasises the transformative education that we are committed to provide to develop your creative employability and enterprise attributes, supporting your ambitions. The course is divided into two blocks of 15 weeks. After an induction week, the first block of the course will take you through an understanding of the fashion consumer and their relationship to fashion business organisations with the internal and external facing operations of these businesses.
The course culminates in the second block with your final major project, which requires you to produce a body of work through independent study that demonstrates research, advanced critical and analytical skills, and an innovative approach to problem solving in your specific field of practice.
It will be expected that the students make industry and academic connections using the resources available at LCF and UAL for their Final Major Project. This final project enables students to prepare for the next stage of their career, whether that be an MA in a related field or a personal entrepreneurial project.
