The Course Placing students in the work environment is a key factor in enabling them to marry their knowledge of purely academic concepts to a real world context. The sandwich course is a course where the first two years of study in fashion design, fashion business and fashion styling, are followed by a third year of work in a fashion firm, after which students return to the school to complete the fourth and final year of study. the work period involves a minimum of 36 weeks in a company in the fashion industry, working in close contact with professionals of the industry. at the end of the 36 weeks, in addition to a better knowledge of the working environment, students will gain a reference from the work provider, which together add value to their training. All this provides to those students who choose a sandwich course with a cv that already includes work experience with a company in the industry and give them the opportunity to start building a professional network. *Students who successfully complete the programmes taught in english in paris and london will be awarded with a ba (hons) degree by MMU (manchester metropolitan university); 120 credits points are available each year of study in order to gain an honours degree, so students will obtain 360 credits upon successful completion of the three-years course. All candidates should meet specific requirements (please check the website www.mmu.ac.uk/international indicating your nationality and study level); for further details please do not hesitate to contact the information office at the chosen campus.
