Course Summary

The Postgraduate course in Fashion and Lifestyle Brand Studies is predominantly theoretical, analytical and research based, allowing individuals from related disciplines who do not necessarily have appropriate practical skills, to study at postgraduate level within the fashion environment.

Individual projects will address a range of student led interests, supported by theoretical underpinning. Case Studies will inform the background issues emerging in the industry, whilst also exemplifying key directions for future markets. Trend forecasting and application, brand management, consumer demographics and industry analysis all underpin and facilitate the development of campaign planning and management.

Learning Environment and Assessment

Teaching involves a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, presentations and industry liaison, and assessment is continuous. Students are expected to contextualize their work within a current framework and develop evaluative skills in order to articulate their point of view, discussing and debating them in a peer group, consequently preparing them for a wide range of careers, including brand management, trend forecasting and brand consultancy.

Opportunities

Study trips are an essential part of research activity that brings design to life. Throughout the programme, students are introduced to contemporary influences with international city trips and study visits to exhibitions and museums - Manchester, London, Berlin and New York have been regular trips in recent years (students will be required to pay for overseas trips/visits, and these are, therefore, optional).

The opportunity for a structured work experience will be provided for every student who requests it. This is a major commitment by the University to help our graduates to reach their potential and thrive in their careers after graduation. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
