What can students expect from your course? 

Students can expect to use a broad range of inspirations to support their design process, and to become autonomous learners in charge of their own personal vision. It’s wonderful to work at WSA with students that are ambitious, creative and highly motivated.

 

What are the key issues facing your subject today?

Responsible design and sustainability, along with ‘fast’ versus ‘slow’ fashion are key issues faced by the design industry today, along with the technical, political and financial implications of these issues. Through studio practice and option modules, students are encouraged to take a thoughtful approach to research and development in order to become successful modern practitioners.

 

How does the course prepare students for life after graduation? 

Students work in a professional studio setting, with an enthusiastic and experienced team to support them. With high levels of engagement, students can enjoy improving their critical thinking skills, communication skills and other key transferable skills that will enable them to join a highly competitive global design industry.

 

What have graduates gone on to achieve? 

Students go on to jobs as fashion designers and design teachers all over the world; many gain experience as interns – some of last year’s graduates worked in London at Gareth Pugh, Roksanda Ilincic and Thomas Tait.
