Each of our online courses has been created alongside our fashion brand partners. You'll be taught in-demand skills by industry specialists. All our courses also include three-week work placement with one of our 140 retail brand connections, boosting your CV and helping you grow your professional network.


Our online courses are designed to ensure that you can complete your studies on your schedule. 

You'll need to attend one live lesson a week (in the evening, GMT) and complete 4-6 hours of individual study each week of the course. There will be a discussion session once a fortnight, and you'll be able to book monthly meetings with your industry mentor, arrange tutorials with the course leader, and access advice and guidance from the FRACareers team.

An online course could be the perfect alternative to a fashion degree if you're looking to get into the fashion industry as quickly as possible (and save yourself money!). As our online courses are no more than 36 weeks and give you the opportunity to still work in your current job alongside your studies, we believe that these bespoke courses are a great alternative to a more academic and longer way of learning.
