From September 2014 the Fashion Design course will be offering the opportunity for students to study on a year 0. This will be a specialist fashion focused preparatory year mainly aimed at applicants applying directly from school who are confident they wish to study fashion design and need to build up the knowledge and skills required for entry on to a BA programme. Year 0 will enable students to explore the creative design process through a series of projects that will encourage the development of a robust approach to research and design. The emphasis will be on exploration and experimentation which will push students creatively and give them the confidence and skills to undertake the rigours of the BA programme in subsequent years. Students will be introduced to methods of research to enable an informed and innovative approach their design process and will explore portfolio techniques to develop design communication.
