The Student Experience
Studying at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design is an exciting, engaging and uniquely enriching experience.
With access to some of the most outstanding creative minds in the business, plus intensive, vocationally-styled courses and a busy timetable—both in our new, state-of-the-art building and beyond into galleries, studios and so on—students will find their days at the Condé Nast College are both busy and rewarding. We believe that the friendships that the students make with one another while they are studying with us are as important as the networking opportunities they will have with an enormous number of external industry professionals. As a result, we encourage a rich, engaged and collegiate attitude from our students while they are here with us, allowing them to forge firm friendships that they will carry forward into their myriad, and undoubtedly stellar, careers all over the globe.
The Condé Nast College places our students in a position to reach their dream career. The College offers excellent industry links and partnerships. Students not only gain a thorough preparation for business life, they have already had extensive engagement with the professional world before leaving the College. Work experience/internships at Condé Nast may be offered to a select group of the most talented students. The College cannot pledge work placements at other companies but it will make introductions and recommendations for star students. The College’s careers advisors are able to guide students on further study, employment opportunities, internships, placements and projects relevant to each student’s requirements. They offer a professional service designed to respond to individual needs. The career advisors also hold workshops on CV writing, portfolio presentation, job search skills and interview techniques. Please note individual career guidance is only available for students on our accredited courses- the BA (Hons) Fashion Communication, the Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma, and the Vogue Fashion Certificate.
The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design has outstanding, award-winning facilities, created and newly constructed with the ambitions of the College and our students in mind. Furthermore, we offer our students a state-of-the-art learning environment that is both inspirational and provocative.
The College is recognised throughout the world as a centre of educational excellence – a place where a new generation of the fashion industry’s best marketeers, PRs, stylists, editors, publishers, and journalists are starting their careers. The College achieves this by putting cutting-edge, student-centred, “anywhere, anytime” learning at the heart of our practice. In order to be sure that our students derive maximum benefit from the unique insight they receive into the fashion industry and its historical context, the College adopts a personalised and highly flexible approach to student learning.
Our courses are based on practical methods – not simply theory. Teaching is intensive and supportive, combining a high proportion of face-to-face sessions with state-of-the-art online learning facilities. This modern, blended learning approach also enables tutors to monitor students’ progress regularly and to deliver effective and constant feedback that is vital to ensure successful learning outcomes. Students also gain valuable, practical experience in delivering visual presentations. The ethos of the Condé Nast College is to equip students with knowledge and skills appropriate to a wide range of careers in the fashion industry or to prepare them for further study in relevant fields.
Library – Print and Digital
Students have access to a wealth of printed and digital media. The College’s central London location also means that students have easy access to many important public libraries and museums including The British Library, the National Art Library at the V&A, the Design Museum, Westminster Reference Library, Tate Library and archive reading rooms.
