    Does anyone have any advice for me..
    Basically I am a student nurse in my second year and starting to think I took the wrong career path.
    I have always wanted to have a career in the fashion industry, but never had the belief that I would be able to make a really good career out of it because it is so competitive.
    Anyway I have a BTEC in business studies which I came out with DDD.
    I passed all of my GCSES also.
    Is this enough qualification wise to apply to universities in London (i'm from Liverpool) to do a degree in fashion buying?
    also how hard is it to actually get a place?
    Thanks for any help!

    Hi Laura
    Studying a degree in Fashion Buying Management is a great step towards starting a career in the Fashion Industry. If you are thinking of studying in London then you will be in a good position to gain valuable work experience too. If you research these types of courses on UCAS you will find that the majority of Fashion Buying courses offer a work placement opportunity. The course at Westminster is a 4 year programme with a year out in industry. Having a BTEC in Business Studies with DDD is a good qualification to have so if you are interested in changing careers this shouldn't be an issue.
    Good luck!

    Fashion degrees actually exist? My respect for the world has just dropped into the negative.

    No no, you misunderstand. This is fashion BUYING. The skills are very sought after.

    I think the modules I enjoyed most and found most applicable to the real world were:

    Modern materials
    Advanced online shopping
    Introduction to onesies
    Wardrobe management

    Oh look once again people unnecessarily offering their opinion on a specific degree which they've never experienced despite that not being what the OP asked at all, how cute and pretentious.

    The bad thing is, I can't tell if you are being serious or not.
