When you enrol, you may already know what you want to do - eventually – but after trying out lots of new things, you may change your mind! Or you may have no idea – and then discover your true calling. It’s best to come with an open mind.
Some students continue their studies, here or at other colleges and universities. Some win residencies, or work on books. Some go into teaching; others into community arts; some into art therapy. Some set up their own studio, or go freelance. You might become a consultant, or go into administration or public relations within your discipline.
Some of our fashion graduates have gone to work for designers such as Jonathon Saunders, Vivienne Westwood, Russell Sage and Hussein Chalayan; others now work in bridal and evening wear, visual merchandising, styling, buying, theatre wardrobe or fashion retail.
If design and illustration are more your thing, you might feel drawn to magazine/book design or illustration, design for advertising, web design, motion graphics, packaging graphics, or character design.
You might become an interior designer, a CAD technician or a video/computer visualisation specialist. You could go into digital video-editing or post-production, 3D modelling and animation, CD/DVD-ROM authoring. You could be designing textiles, cards and gift wrap, or wall coverings.
You might end up overseas. The world is your oyster!
