You want the freedom to design, and to see your ideas come to life. You’re highly motivated, and want to develop your unique style. At Herts, you’ll join an inspirational and collaborative community, and you’ll have the technical facilities to explore your creativity. Our studios have everything you need: mannequins, sewing machines, cutting tables, and metres upon metres of fabric. You’ll use Computer-Aided Design to visualise and test your ideas, and we’ll support you to create an inspirational collection and to promote your designs.
We’ll set you broad assignment briefs which means you can bring your personality, your identity, and your culture into the heart of your designs. Every step of the way you’ll benefit from our expertise and experience: we’re rated TEF Gold, which makes us one of the best universities for teaching and support.
You know you can thrive in the right environment - so do we. We want you to feel right at home in our studio, because this is your space to create.
We offer one of the few Fashion Business degrees in the country where you’ll learn about the fashion industry from both a business and creative angle. You’ll graduate with a competitive edge.
We’ll teach you everything we know about running a business. You’ll learn how to design, and you’ll gain practical and technical skills to bring your creations to life. Not a lot of courses offer both, but we do. We’ll teach you the financial considerations of running a business. You may want to make fashion for the high street, the runway, or a boutique - either way, your customer is key.
You’ll study customer psychology and market trends, and explore the sustainability of the fashion industry. We’ll teach you about every stage of the fashion cycle from concept to sales, and you’ll learn about the supply chain. Together we’ll explore how to create a socially responsible company, and we’ll teach you verbal, written and visual communication skills. Start with a concept. End with a sale.
