I do not have a Bachelor of Arts in fashion design, is there still a chance for me to enter the program?
Applicants for the Masters Program from other educational fields than Fashion Design, should have followed fashion related courses during their Bachelor study. Furthermore, they should have a strong connection to (sustainable) fashion. The program has a very practical orientation and therefore requires students to have basic design, sewing and pattern making skills. Please be aware that during the study you might need some external support for completing projects, which you need to keep in mind for your budget. The amount of the extra costs depends on your project.
