    So basically I am thinking about going into fashion designing (not sure yet, wanted to do it for a very long time) and am wondering if anyone can suggest me some good universities for fashion designing. I have always wanted to do it but have always been super confused about it as it is a quite risky field since you're either at the absolute top or right at the bottom.

    I have done A levels and my grades aren't that bad to be honest as I have 3 B's in Biology, Chemistry and Physics overall. So yeah, just wondering if anyone is studying fashion designing at the moment and how your experience has been in addition to which university you are going to!

    Are you taking a creative course at the moment (art foundation diploma? or similar)? You'll need a portfolio of design work for entry onto a design course - sketchbooks, development work, finished pieces etc.

    fashion designing is not a university course, it is a higher level btec.
    Really?
    https://www.businessoffashion.com/ed.../rankings/2016 <= world fashion rankings

    http://www.arts.ac.uk/fashion/ <= an entire university college dedicated to fashion

    http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...view&code=W230 <= fashion design at a russell group university

    http://www.southampton.ac.uk/wsa/und...e_design.page? <= fashion design at another russell group university (note the rusell group doesn't mean **** about quality of courses in the fashion industry)

    http://www.graduatefashionweek.com/ <= it's amazing that such an enormous event happens from a "higher level btec"

    Wow u haven't done badly. Three B's. Maybe instead of wasting your time posting pointless things on student room, you should actually sit down and open your revision textbook. By the way, fashion designing is not a university course, it is a higher level btec.

    Don't you have anything better to do then do research for a girl who is to lazy to open up a new tab and type fashion design degrees onto google. Stick to an apprenticeship luv.

    No I'm not! I'm actually taking a gap year and trying to figure out what I want to do next at university haha!

    I know! It's just a bit overwhelming considering that I've never really taken arts as a subject apart from school. So a bit confused as to where to start from. I'm considering applying to UAL even though it's extremely competitive but eh, you never know until you try. So lets see haha

    Hey I got your message mentioning how you're desperate for attention and how you're 'sorry' for being rude.


    P.S- Wondering how well you did when you screwed up your A levels

    Also, please do your research, arrogant ignorant random 'hotshot'. Fashion designing IS a university course.

    why are you taking 3 sciences for alevels if you want to go into fashion designing?
    Well, I did three A levels in Science because at that time I wasn't sure if I wanted to actually do fashion designing due to the high risk involved in it in terms of being successful. Also, I couldn't do any arts A levels as they're not really available where I live so I didn't really ever had that option which honestly sucks haha. So I sort of just went for the three most ...versatile A levels I guess? I'll also be taking Maths A level exams in May/June so there's that.

    It would be a good idea to look into applying for an art foundation diploma. Those are 1 year full time FE (so equivalent to A levels) courses that give you the time and support to develop your drawing and design skills and to explore your own style.

    They're tuition fee free if you're under 19 when you start (and if you're over 19 then you can get an advanced learner loan to cover the (compared to university degrees, low) fees)...but the downside is that you're not eligible for student loans for living costs while you study them. They're offered by sixth form colleges and by some universities (UAL - camberwell and Sentral St Martins and Arts Uni Bournemouth and UCA are the main universities offering them in the south) and the deadline for applying is usually March time...you will need a portfolio but if you're not studying/working huge hours at the moment then that should be possible to put together in a couple of months.
