The Foundation is a level three (120 credits) pre-university course is suitable for UK, EU and International students interested in studying fashion related subjects at degree level at a later stage. Students will be introduced to key aspects of the creative industries with an emphasis on fashion and media.

It is also suitable for those that do not meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Fashion Communication or equivalent degree courses at other institutions. Study and research skills are embedded into all modules to ensure students are effectively prepared for the transition to higher education and support with degree applications is a priority. Successful and engaged students who complete the Foundation will be considered for the BA (Hons) Fashion Communication should they wish to join this course.

Studying at our award-winning facilities in the heart of Central London, students will have unique access to the incredible roster of industry speakers in addition to their studies. Past speakers have included British Vogue Editor Edward Enninful, Tory Burch, Natalie Massenet, Tommy Hilgifer, Victoria Beckham, and many more.
