Progression Research

———-29th NOVEMBER 2016———

Recently I have become more drawn to the idea of studying at Northumbria University and so this has moved up the list to become more like my 2nd or 3rd application rather than 5th. Edinburgh has moved down slightly as the idea of starting 2nd year puts me off a little bit. For the same reason I will probably no longer apply to Glasgow School of Art, as on top of starting 2nd year it’s also further away.

  • Leeds College of Art
  • Northumbria University
  • Leeds Beckett University
  • Edinburgh College of Art
  • Manchester Metropolitan University
  • UAL

In terms of degrees i’m fairly sure that fashion is the area i’d like to go into. Within this there are three specialised areas that appeal to me:

  • Fashion marketing/merchandising
  • Fashion journalism
  • Fashion buying

In the last few months I have been looking into the following institutions as potential progression routes:

  • Leeds College of Art
  • Leeds Beckett University
  • Edinburgh College of Art
  • Glasgow School of Art
  • Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Northumbria University
  • UAL

As a city Leeds appeals to me as it is very student-orientated, and is close enough to home for travel costs to be relatively low. Furthermore, the structure of the fashion degrees at the two Leeds institutions sounds appealing, particularly the College of Art. After my first two applications which are likely to be the College of Art and Beckett, Edinburgh is another city that I think I would find very enjoyable to live & study in. Again, it’s not overly far from home – a 90 minute train journey, and I know from past visits that there’s lots of things I like about the area.
