|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA (Hons))|
This one-year programme extends the skills you have developed during your HND or Foundation Degree in Fashion and Textiles (or a related subject) and focuses on the development and realisation of a final collection of fashion or textile work. The qualification is taught at West Kent College's University Centre in Tonbridge and is awarded and quality assured by the University of Kent.
Although it offers a natural progression route from the Foundation Degree in Fashion and Textiles at West Kent College, we also welcome and encourage applications from students who have achieved a HND or Foundation Degree in fashion, textiles or a related subject at another college or university. It will enable you to convert your Level 5 HND or Foundation Degree qualification into a Level 6 BA (Honours) Degree.
The programme has been designed to extend the skills of Foundation Degree/HND fashion and textile graduates, with a focus on the development and realisation of a final graduate collection of fashion or textile work. You will analyse the market and your workplace within it, creating a visual identity and employing professional communication methods including exhibiting in London as part of the New Designers event and the creation of a professional portfolio. You may progress to postgraduate study, such as a Masters or teacher training, or internships and employment in a range of fashion & textile or creative industry roles.
