Did you know that the UK fashion industry is worth over £32 billion? The industry provides over 890,00 jobs in the UK making it almost as large as the financial sector.

With the industry continuing to go from strength to strength, it comes as no surprise that students are seeking qualifications that can best prepare them for Higher Education (HE) at leading arts universities or equip them with the relevant skills to help elevate their employability. With this in mind, UAL Awarding Body is proud to be hosting Creating Fashionable Futures at the Garden Museum.
