Entry Criteria

  • You should have the equivalent or above of a 2:2 UK bachelor’s honours degree in a relevant subject, for example fashion, design or business.If you have other professional qualifications and industry experience, we will consider your application on an individual basis.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.0 (including a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent is normally required. English language tuition is available at DMU both before and during the course, if required.

Interview

Non-standard applicants will be invited to attend an interview.

The programme is delivered primarily through lectures and seminars as well as tutorial guidance. Lectures deliver a discourse on a particular subject followed by seminars which are used for holding discussions or for the exchanging of information in a smaller group. Tutorials are provided usually to discuss a subject on a one to one basis between the tutor and yourself; however you may find yourself in a small tutorial group to benefit from the contribution of others.

The Fashion Management with Marketing MA is a theoretical programme and assessments are mostly by the submission of fully referenced and structured reports. Presentations are also fundamental as an opportunity for you to present your work to others either for assessment or within a scheduled class activity. One module also includes the formulation of a weekly blog for you to keep abreast of topical issues and sometimes to provide a framework for seminar discussions, as well as being an assessed module component. You will be required to submit a project proposal which will act as your plan for future research, especially for the dissertation.

As a postgraduate student you will be expected to conduct a substantial amount of self-directed learning. This is important for you to contextualise your studies and to broaden your knowledge. It is the breadth and depth that will add so much to your work and your studies. Through receiving feedback on your work, you will be able to reflect on aspects of your learning and develop an action plan that will help you to progress.

The fashion and textile business is highly competitive and we encourage you to develop networking opportunities by becoming a student member of trade associations and to engage in conferences and seminars delivered by industry members. We expect you to be proactive and attend presentations provided by visitors from the fashion and textiles business to the university, as extra curricular activity. Throughout the programme the curriculum is enhanced by visiting lectures from a variety of business experiences, where appropriate to the module curriculum.

Contact hours
In your first two terms you will normally attend around 12 hours of timetabled taught sessions including lectures, tutorials and workshop and studio sessions each week, and be expected to undertake at least 23 hours of independent study each week. Your third term will be pre-dominantly self-directed (including meetings with your supervisor), during which you can expect to undertake 35 hours of independent study each week.
