The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Fashion Marketing and Design degree program enables students to develop as creative, design-focused, fashion innovators, who are passionate about fashion design and who have a good understanding of fashion marketing. Students learned how to express their personal vision of fashion through the development of innovative design and marketing ideas, which express their grasp of the conceptual and the aesthetic. They have a strong foundation in traditional methods and are able to apply modern digital technologies to fashion methods and processes.
The goal of the BFA program in Fashion Marketing and Design with a specialization in Fashion Design is to help develop creative and innovative designers who are equipped with the techniques of fine craftsmanship and attuned to the needs of the consumer.

The curriculum helps students to develop a strong sense of the aesthetic, and to use fashion design elements such as balance and proportion to create strong designs relevant to fashion. The program also offers the opportunity to acquire marketing skills related to fashion trends, event management, and customer profiling.

SPECIALIZATION COURSE OPTIONS
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
