PgCert Fashion: Buying and Merchandising


Course Description

Introduction

A dynamic, relevant and industry-facing course with live briefs, keynote speakers and field trips. Students develop product, market and consumer insight, an understanding of the supply chain and strong negotiating skills.

Content

The Postgraduate Certificate Fashion: Buying and Merchandising is a fashion business course with a vocational focus on buying and merchandising. It combines a post graduate level academic experience with the vocational realities of retailer buying and merchandising operations. The course covers a range of vocational knowledge and skills for students seeking a career in fashion buying and merchandising, and develops knowledge of both theoretical and practical issues relevant to current practice in the UK buying and merchandising sector. This is integrated with practical professional skills in communication, negotiation and presentation. Distinctive features of the course are the strong links with fashion buying and merchandising offices in the UK and the opportunity afforded by the practical emphasis on skills negotiation in the final project.

The course is designed for graduates aiming at a first career position in fashion buying or merchandising but who need to supplement their first degree with a more relevant academic qualification. The course may also be suitable as a preparation for higher level postgraduate study in related subject areas.

The Postgraduate Certificate Fashion: Buying and Merchandising course is based at High Holborn, adjacent to Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Other green spaces in the area include Gray’s Inn Gardens and Coram’s Fields. Situated nearby are Sir John Soane’s Museum in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, the Foundling Museum in Brunswick Square, and the British Museum in Bloomsbury. Markets worth visiting are the weekday lunchtime markets in Leather Lane and Exmouth Market. Covent Garden, with its numerous shops, bars and restaurants, the Royal Opera House and many of the West End’s theatres, is a ten minute walk away. The John Prince’s Street site, with the library, Oxford Street and Regent Street, is two tube stops along the Central line.
