Fashion degrees at the University of South Wales examine and nurture the connection between commerciality and creativity. We aim to produce visionary fashion designers who are ready for successful careers in the retail and fashion world. Our graduates have the skills and knowledge to excel in the fashion industry, and we prepare them to become the future faces of design.

Our students have won awards at Graduate Fashion Week for many years.

All fashion students work on ‘live’ projects and competitions with fashion brands, which are supported by annual industry visits. These opportunities will help you gain maximum real-life exposure in the fast-paced and competitive work arena of fashion, retail and interior design.

Speak to the lecturers and expert staff who teach the courses, take tours of our campuses and facilities, view accommodation, speak to our advice team about placement and career opportunities and discuss finances. Plus, speak to current students and hear about their experiences first hand.
