Information about the course

Fashion and Textiles:  the design, manufacture and marketing of garments and textiles for fashions and furnishings.  This is a broad field that ranges from making individual fine art textile pieces to designing entire ranges of fashion apparel for large retailers.

This two year full-time programme is one of seven titles being offered under the umbrella award of Creative Enterprise Foundation Degree at West Herts College.  The programme has been developed and will be administered by the University of Hertfordshire.

The programme addresses the thinking, processes, attitudes and skills that are common to all creative activities.  It provides a structure that enables students from a variety of starting-points to develop their own creativity within a context provided by the industries and organisations that utilise this creativity.  The creative sector is comprehensively mapped by national, regional and local organisations and there is a common view as to their extent.  This largely informs the award titles to be offered in the Foundation Degree programme, namely:

Student work on the programme is generated by project briefs that deliver structured opportunities to meet module learning outcomes, within scenarios that reflect current vocational practice.
