Lectures : Lectures are designed to challenge students by exposing them to the inner workings of the fashion industry as it operates today. The lecturers will lead students through valuable in-class activities and encourage discussion in order to have fruitful and engaging interactions.
Self-Study : Self-study is a pre-requisite at postgraduate level that supports autonomy and personal management. Students will be asked to do preparation work in order to make the most out of each session. Throughout the course, students will have to complete a set of learning activities to gain full understanding of the topics studied in class. Self-study will be actively supported by our Learning Management System (LMS).
Capstone Project : The Capstone Project is an integrative experience in which students bring together much of the knowledge and skills they acquire and develop while on their course. The Capstone experience is student-directed, meaning that students take responsibility for identifying and defining a problem to work on, developing the approach and methods needed to address the problem, carrying out the investigation independently, and presenting findings in both oral and written forms for examination.
Industry Visits : During the course, students may have the opportunity to work on industry sponsored projects in cooperation with international brands, attend fashion events and master-classes in luxury services, listen to prestigious speakers, and visit leading brand stores, design studios and factories. Reflective thinking and writing will be required from students in order to make the most out of such experiences for their personal development.
Student Workload : The weekly student workload amounts to 40 - 45 hours a week. It breaks up into 20 hours of lectures on average and at least the same amount of time in personal and extra-curricular activities including readings, case studies, research, projects and visits.
