What can I do with my degree in Fashion?

Further study


Most fashion graduates reach full employment (85.4%) going into areas such as design and media (28.0%), marketing and PR (18.2%) or secretarial and clerk roles (6.9%) with the most popular job titles including clothing designers, marketing associates, professional buyers, and merchandisers (source), yet 3.6% go into further study specialising in Master’s degrees that range from childrenswear to embroidery, theatrical costume to textiles, millinery to shoe design as well as more broadly the social, economic and ethical aspects of fashion (source).

According to the Prospects website BA degrees in textiles, design, knitwear, marketing, clothing technology as well as some industry experience are all useful starting points for progression towards future employment and/or further study (source), but there is a variety of postgraduate courses in fashion and textile design to choose from.
