English Plus Fashion (Year Round)
I have been here for around 2 months and I’m already very glad to learn more about fashion in such a prestigious University. Moreover, the way of teaching, the quality of my course and the broad approach of my teacher let me think that this is the best place to study fashion.
Hour per week
- 15 hours of General or Academic English at the Language Centre.
- 7 hours of fashion at London College of Fashion.

This course covers seven topics, giving you the opportunity to try a different aspect of fashion every four weeks. If you attend for the full 24 weeks you will have an overview of the industry and an idea of where you might excel if you are considering further study.
