Summary

Become a fashion designer or skilled, industry-ready fashion professional with this internationally-recognised qualification.

Why study Fashion Design with us?

This leading fashion degree is recognised for its international opportunities, industry connections and the chance to develop your style and identity as a designer.

The programme is hands-on and reflects current industry practice. You'll develop your advanced design and technical skills, extend your market knowledge and explore enterprise opportunities.

Benefits of our fashion degree:

A boutique learning environment – small classes mean your lecturers know you by name and can support you to develop your own ‘design identity’. Studio-based learning with access to specialised equipment and spaces. Exchange and study abroad opportunities in Europe and Asia. Strong international fashion connections. Individual, team and interdisciplinary learning opportunities. Exhibitions and international competitions to showcase your creativity and talent. Client projects, industry placements and internships which help you to become a work-ready graduate. Access to support and business start-up advice through the Dunedin Fashion Incubator (Dfi). Employers love our fashion design graduates because they’re innovative, hard-working, solution-focused and well prepared for the realities of the fashion world.

Your workload: There is an emphasis throughout the three-year programme on the development of independent learning skills. This is reflected in the decrease of directed hours over the three years with an expectation that by the end of year three, you will be an independent learner. You will work really hard, but you can also count on having heaps of fun along the way!
