Our BA (Hons) Fashion Image and Styling (with Integrated Foundation Year and Professional Practice Year) is a five year degree programme, including a foundation year to help develop your creativity before you embark on year one of a degree. Your fourth academic year would then include a year in industry placement.

This course will help make you a key player in the fashion industry. On this course, you’ll discover how to create looks and concepts for every scenario – from the movies and the red carpet to the High Street and magazines.

Fashion image experts and stylists are at the front line of the fashion industry, working across fashion shoots and celebrity events, and even with social media influencers.

Taught by styling experts, you’ll learn everything you need to know to enter any area of the industry – whether it’s fashion styling, fashion film, fashion illustration or curation.

Throughout the course, you’ll explore the often unseen role of fashion image creators and learn how to tackle any brief – from styling a fashion show to creating an Instagram series, directing a pop video or even leading an entire creative team towards a common goal.

Along the way, you’ll benefit from a wealth of industry expertise, make use of our extensive fashion facilities, and develop in-depth skills in styling, film and photography, image-making, event and show curation and even virtual concept-building.

Our students have gone on to work in events and creative direction at M&S and Gucci, styling at i-D Magazine and Net-a-Porter, and even presenting and hosting fashion events in London, New York and Milan.
