The Graduate Diploma Fashion Management course at University of the Arts London (UAL) provides an approach to learning that encourages autonomous and creative work to build confidence in becoming a reflective and independent learner.
We aim to make you a strategic thinker and decision maker together with developing your creative attributes through your Professional Portfolio.
What to expect
A one-year conversion course for students who have a 2:2 or higher first degree; we welcome students who may have a previous degree outside the area of fashion management.
The course emphasises the importance of sustainability and ethics within the fashion industry when responding to consumer behaviour and demand.
Business and management theories are explored and combined with practical applications.
The course is taught by a range of specialist academics with knowledge and experience relevant to the disciplines of the course.
Throughout the course your personal and professional development is informed through the UAL Creative Attributes Framework (CAF), this culminates in the creation your Professional Portfolio produced as part of your Final Major Project. This framework emphasises the transformative education that we are committed to provide, to develop your creative employability and enterprise attributes, supporting your ambitions in the competitive fashion environment.
The course is divided into two blocks of 15 weeks. After an induction week, the first block of the course will take you through an understanding of the fashion consumer and their relationship to fashion business organisations with the internal and external facing operations of these businesses.
The course culminates in the second block with your Final Major Project, which requires you to produce a body of work through independent study that demonstrates research through advanced critical and analytical skills together with an innovative approach to problem solving in your specific field of ambition and practice.
