Over 93% of our students are in employment or further education on completion of their Level 4 Fashion Course.
Ella, Level 4 Visual Merchandising
“I chose to study a Level 4 because I was changing my career plans. I wanted to be sure fashion was the right area for me, and I didn’t want to do a master's and be out of my depth. At the time, I was working at Selfridges, and they recommended the Fashion Retail Academy to me. My Level 4 course still really challenged me, so it was perfect!
My course highlight was the second term project - which was more about the branding side of things. I chose Natasha Zinko, and I posted my work on Instagram and she gave it a like and comment!
When I first left the Fashion Retail Academy, I went straight into a visual merchandising role at Reserved on Oxford Street. I used my final major project as a portfolio at interviews, and it helped so much."
Any advice for new students?
“Network! That’s one of the biggest things that’s helped me - try to network constantly throughout the year. Getting to know loads of people in the industry is the best thing you can do. Through networking whilst I was studying, I got another role as Events Manager and now I’ve been promoted again!”
