Studying Fashion

What to look forward to

Throughout your learning, you’ll develop your own creative identity with our support.

Whereas other universities have their own ‘house style’, here at Middlesex, the work produced is a reflection of you, not the place you studied.

Reach your full creative potential

You’ll have our state-of-the-art facilities at your fingertips to help develop your own identity and produce your best possible work, including: knit, weave, print and industrial sewing machinery, photographic studios, green screens, laser cut, 3D workshops, jewellery ceramics.

Access cutting edge digital programmes too, such as 3D rendering software allowing you to visualise designs virtually as well as having free access to Adobe Creative Suite

Hands on learning and collaboration

Most of your teaching timetable will be on campus using our professional facilities where you’ll be able to collaborate with your peers. Classes such as collaborative photography and styling projects and production classes for Fashion Communication and Styling students will take place in our bespoke studios, as will technical classes such as pattern and sewing workshops and knit, print and weave workshops for design or textiles.

There will also be blended online activities in your timetable where that extra flexibility benefits you. This includes larger group lectures and seminars (such as the more contextual Visual Cultures module), industry engagement, tutorial sessions, Digital/ CLO3D and Adobe workshops and employability talks.

Excellent academic support

We keep our class numbers small so you will have plenty of contact time with academic tutors and the technical team, meaning you will have a more bespoke learning experience as a result. All our lecturers have industry experience and will help you develop into a forward-thinking, industry-ready fashion graduate with diverse skills and expertise.

Support for your successful career in fashion

In your second year, you’ll be fully supported to apply for and complete a work placement. Past students have gained experience at studios such as Alexander McQueen, Matty Bovan, Mary Katrantzou, Simone Rocha and Richard Quinn.

Afterwards, you’ll use this experience to reflect upon and analyse your own future in the industry and focus on producing final year work that aligns with the job you want.

Our strong industry links will give you the opportunity to collaborate with industry professionals and other creatives to work on real life briefs and practical projects throughout your degree, enabling you to build your networks and portfolio so that you are prepared for the beginning of your career.

The team is looking forward to welcoming you to Middlesex! With our placement programme, state-of-the art facilities and dedicated team, we’re excited to see you develop into a professional, ready to take on the fashion industry.
