Fashion

You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.

A fashion designer, a fashion journalist, or anybody else connected to fashion should be well educated in art, cultural heritage, history, aesthetic theories on one hand, and on the other – be creative and capable of coming up with individual and challenging ideas and concepts. A Course in Fashion can provide a comprehensive understanding and foundation in all of these aspects.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.
