Advanced Diploma in Fashion
We have found that it has been beneficial for students to further their education and training with a year of specialisation which exposes them to the work environment for extended periods of time. This enables students to better respond to challenges presented in the increasingly complex fashion industry. During this one year full-time or two year part-time programme, students will develop a deeper understanding of the entire value chain and gain industry experience within a specialised field of interest whether it is apparel, accessory design or any other specialised field within fashion.
If you are interested in enrolling for the 2016 year, classes will commence towards the end of January 2016 and you will need to complete your application process by the end of October 2015 so that your internship placements can be confirmed by end of November 2015.
The tuition method consists of compulsory contact sessions on campus integrated with compulsory placement in a workplace setting of relevant specialisation field.
