Module Overview

Course Delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.

Fashion promotion and marketing facilities


  • We are delighted to announce our British Fashion Council membership. Founded in 1993 to create an interface between education and industry, the BFC Colleges Council represents the leading fashion departments in universities and colleges throughout the UK. This membership enriches our student’s experience and creates additional industry opportunities though an annual programme of events and high profile competitions. The British Fashion Council joined forces with the Saturday Clubs Trust to support our Fashion & Business Saturday Club and we have been fortunate to have secured many high-profile Saturday Club Masterclasses through our BFC connection.

Industry Links

  • When size? established links with higher education, one of the immediate goals of size? syllabus was to approach and get involved with the very best fashion and creative arts talent in the UK, so we were made up with the addition of UCLan, with officially one of the best fashion departments in the UK, to our size? syllabus programme. The main aim of the Syllabus is to impart industry level standards, learning and practice in a live brief format to students, who are then given the support and tools from size? to respond. At size? we want to unearth the next generation of creatives and by offering this platform in the form of size? Syllabus we believe students involved stand the best possible chance of making their way into the industry, able to utilise the invaluable learnings taught during their time answering the Syllabus briefs
