LCF will want a portfolio of design and art work - are you able to put that together without a creative qualification?

I suggest you email them and ask if what you are doing meets their entry requirements for that course.

As above - you have no creative qualification at Level 3 and you may find that doing something like an A&D Foundation course in-between school and Uni helps you gain a place, and to understand 'fashion' better (https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...ation-diplomas)

Remember you will need to apply for 5 choices not just UAL and other Fashion Marketing courses will also require an Art or Media qualification - ie. https://courses.leeds.ac.uk/g186/fashion-marketing-ba and https://www.ntu.ac.uk/course/art-and...g-and-branding

And even if you opt to take a FAD (Art & Design Foundation Diploma) then you’ll STILL need a portfolio of art and design work for entry onto a FAD - they aren’t entry level courses. They’re designed to bridge the gap between A level and degree so if you don’t have a portfolio or your portfolio is miles away from A level standard then you won’t be accepted.

Hi there,

Great to see you're looking ahead at your future career and considering London College of Fashion.
The requirements for Fashion Public Relations are as follows:

One or a combination of the following accepted full level 3 qualifications.

A Level Passes at Grade C or above (preferred subjects include English, a foreign language and Media Studies);
Merit at Foundation Diploma in Art and Design;
Merit, Merit, Merit at BTEC Extended Diploma (preferred subjects Art & Design);
Merit, Pass at UAL Extended Diploma;
Access Diploma or 96 new UCAS tariff points from the Access to HE Diploma;
96 new UCAS tariff points (equivalent to 240 old UCAS tariff points) from a combination of the above qualifications or an equivalent full Level 3 qualification;
or equivalent EU or non-EU qualifications such as International Baccalaureate Diploma;
and Five GCSE passes at grade A*-C or grade 9-4, with grade C (grade 4) or above in English.


So as long as you're able to demonstrate you passion and interest in fashion specifically in your personal statement and the written piece you are requested to do as part of the application process a BTEC in Business should put you in a good position.

I hope that is helpful and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions.

All the best,

Thanks Tegan - this is spot on. And just to be really clear, you do not need a creative portfolio for BA (Hons) Fashion Public Relations and Communication at LCF.
