We are ranked 15th in the UK for Fashion & Textiles in the UK by The Guardian for 2024.

Whether you want to create the next sustainable fashion brand, produce editorial photography for top magazines or build your own retail empire, our undergraduate and Master's degrees in fashion will set you on course for a successful and exciting career.

At UCA, we're proud to offer you exceptional facilities and unique courses that combine the chance to learn from academic and industry experts with opportunities to take part in competitions and live briefs that will help you build valuable professional links.

Our fashion courses run from our School of Fashion and Textiles at UCA Epsom. We are taking big steps towards upgrading our professional fashion and textiles facilities - with an investment of £15m envisaged between now and 2023. Our plans see new purpose built spaces being constructed alongside remodelled spaces. We anticipate this will all be ready for the start of the 2023-2024 academic year.

“The course, the workshops, the supervisors — they all encouraged me to think outside the box and push design boundaries. My time at UCA was busy and intense, but beyond exciting! I learned so much and it was great being somewhere that encouraged me to be my creative best.” Hefina Williams, BA (Hons) Fashion
