Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design

The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design was opened in 2013 by the global media giant Condé Nast, the privately-owned publisher of Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, Wired and many more iconic titles. It combines the unrivalled access to the fashion industry with rigorous academic learning delivered by the faculty in a unique, industry-led educational offering.

The College provides students with a world-class fashion education and exclusive access to the brightest minds in the industry, including the Condé Nast magazine teams at world-renowned titles such as; Vogue, LOVE, Glamour, Wired, GQ, and world renowned fashion brands.

Condé Nast's courses combine creativity with sound business knowledge for you to take into the workplace. While studying with Condé Nast you will explore the many diverse roles that make up the fashion and media industries including styling, journalism, buying, marketing, branding, graphic design, PR, e-commerce, business, digital strategy, entrepreneurship and a myriad of other career paths into this exciting, fast-paced industry.

What makes Condé Nast unique

Unrivalled industry speakers - at no other academic institution can you find guest speakers such as the ones at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design. You will attend regular industry talks from the best in their field, including design, publishing, journalism, marketing, retail, advertising, PR, and digital practices. Past speakers have included Adwoa Aboah, Victoria Beckham, Tory Burch, Anna Dello Russo, Edward Enninful, Tommy Hilfiger, Natalie Massenet and many more.

A personalised approach to learning - Intense programs such as the two-year BA (Hons) degree and one-year Masters’ degrees mean you can get out into the industry more quickly. The academic staff, who are the best in their field, prefer to see their charges as “colleagues” rather than just “students” and you can expect a high level of interaction as a lot of the teaching takes place in small groups to allow for a more personalised approach to learning. 

Vocational bias - The courses are based on real-life, not just theory. Through industry speakers, expert workshops, company visits and real-time work projects, you will gain extensive exposure to the working world before leaving the College, resulting in highly professional skills that are instantly transferrable to the workplace.

Condé Nast's contemporary building has been designed to create a calm environment conducive to learning, with computer labs, a photography studio, a lecture theatre and a roof-terrace break-out area.
