    Hi, I’m in lower sixth right now (Year 12) and I’m being encouraged to start looking at Uni’s because at the start of upper sixth which is this September I’ll be applying. But I’m not really sure what I am meant to be looking for are there any tips when looking for Uni’s, I really want to go Into fashion design so I looked at some Uni’s but I found that they only offered men’s and women’s fashion separately whereas I would like to do them together does anyone have any ideas where I could look at. Also does anyone know if there’s any good work experience for fashion in Manchester?

    There's plenty of universities and colleges that offer a generic Fashion course that you can customise to your interests. What sort of study environment are you looking for? Big city/small city/big town/countryside/any preferences about north/south/scotland/wales?

    http://creativeskillset.org/search/3...=Undergraduate is a reasonable place to start - those courses are industry accredited.

    As for work experience - what sort of thing are you interested in?

    It's fairly common for applicants to take a foundation diploma before starting a degree to give them more time to try different techniques/skills and develop their portfolio (more info here https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5017684 ) and if you're not completely sure or want more experience before committing to a course then you can apply to both BA courses and Foundation Diplomas at the same time.

    Get along to the UCAS fair in March https://www.ucas.com/events/manchest...ibition-308236 and don't rush your application in in the Autumn - there's a Create your Future UCAS fair in Manchester in November each year which is specifically for art, design and performance courses (and normally includes all sorts of workshops and shows as well as stands from art schools and colleges).

    I’m mainly interested in the design part of fashion so I wondered if there were any work experience places like that in the Manchester area
