Cutting edge and industry focused
The Department of Fashion based at the University of Westminster offers both undergraduate and postgraduate courses covering design and different aspects of business. Even in the current difficult financial climate, nearly all of the graduates of our pioneering degree in Fashion Merchandise Management progress to suitable employment in the industry.
More recent developments - the BA in Fashion Buying, and our MA in Fashion Business Management - are proving equally successful. We also offer a range of short courses for prominent retailers including Harrods, Tesco and New Look.
A highlight of our year is the acclaimed graduation catwalk show featuring the work of BA Fashion Design students. This highly competitive course is renowned for its cutting edge creativity and for the ways in which it prepares students not merely to develop their designs but also to operate effectively in the challenging world of fashion.
