Industry Placement for Fashion & Textile Design


A period of work placement within a degree programme is often viewed as pivotal in the development of today’s graduates, in the sense that academic disciplines and practical application can be interrelated, and key transferable skills practised and developed. The opportunity for you to apply your knowledge  and skills in a fashion and textiles industry setting, whilst gaining experience from the atmosphere and pace of the workplace, helps to develop confidence, define future career goals and enhance employability.
