    Course Outline

    Year 1:

    You will begin with a core curriculum which will teach you the fundamentals of textile science and technology. You’ll also learn to understand the fashion industry as a business. You’ll take modules like Introduction to Management, Retail and Design Management, Introduction to Marketing and several textile science modules.

    Year 2:

    This year sees you building on the skills and theory you developed in year 1. You’ll explore specific aspects of management in much more depth. You’ll also learn about managing the fashion industry’ notoriously troublesome supply chain. You’ll expand your understanding of clothing technology and product design, marketing and manufacture as well.

    Placement Year (optional):

    You may apply to spend your third year in an industrial placement or abroad. If so, you will return to take your 3rd year modules in the 4th year.

    Year 3/4:

    Your last year in the program will see you taking the advanced electives which will define your specialty. You might focus on strategic management of retail units, for example. You have 2 options in year 3 as well. You may develop a final year project in line with your specialty, or you may elect to deliver a Business Project instead. This will see you starting a company and running it for a year.

    Learning & Teaching

    Classes at the University of Manchester’s Fashion Management program rely on formal lecture classes, tutorial sessions and small seminars just like most programs. They also rely heavily on textile chemistry, manufacturing technology, materials testing, IT and CAD laboratory work.
