The course offers opportunities for work experience, and our collaboration with industry partners including Hearst Magazines UK sets our programme apart. You can apply for an internship with one of their brands to experience how fashion is communicated in print, online and in live events. Previous students have worked as fashion and communications interns at Esquire, ELLE, and ELLE Ukraine. These placements have helped previous students develop lasting professional contacts —and even their first magazine design jobs.
