This intensive one year programme allows you to develop your skills in creative fashion design technology, which will facilitate progression to MA study or into employment.
Please note: This course will run at Level 6, which is equivalent to the final year of a BA Honours degree, and is a preparatory course for students who want to study at postgraduate level, but currently need further knowledge and skills before being eligible for postgraduate study.
The course is also suitable for graduates who would like to further their knowledge and skills before moving into industry. It covers design for menswear and womenswear, product development, garment technology and pattern cutting.
The course encourages creative thinking and innovative design approaches, and emphasises that 3D realisation is key to understanding the process of design and manufacture.
Specialist staff and facilities cover a range of new and established technologies that give students an insight into manufacturing and design in the fashion industry. Students from the Graduate Diploma are part of the postgraduate community in the design hub at Mare Street, and many students find this course helpful in preparing them for progression to MA study.
Other graduates move straight into the international fashion market. Students are encouraged to think about fashion in the wider sense and use their time at LCF to proactively forge industry links. Many alumni have gained employment within the industry.
