gap year for fashion student Watch

Badges: 0
Report Thread starter 4 years ago
I want to take a gap year before I apply to ucas for a degree in textiles and design next year, but I'm a bit stuck on what to do, I want to gain as much experience as I can, so I can have a strong personal statement and lots to talk about. I've worked in H&M and I've been to a few fashion shows, I don't feel like that's enough to get me into the course I want to do. I was just looking for any advice in getting work experience to do with fashion/textiles. And I'm not sure if I should take a foundation degree in textiles after my gap year or go straight into applying for a degree, would you be able to apply for foundation degrees and BA degrees on ucas at the same time?
Thank you
Tyler Bam
