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.
The college is situated in the heart of Soho, London’s premier creative hub. 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. Students can be inspired by the on-site Vogue magazine archive dating back to the late 1960s and are within walking distance of Vogue House and the Condé Nast headquarters.
The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design offers both Bachelor and Masters Degrees, and a variety of short and online courses, all focused on the fashion, media and luxury lifestyle industries.
As a boutique academic institution, Condé Nast has a highly personalised approach to learning and believe in nurturing individual career goals. A smaller-scale college environment means that you are part of a positive learning culture with excellent student camaraderie and strong support from staff, helping you get to where you want to go upon graduating from the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design.

Across the Pond is the official representative for this teaching institution for selected countries around the world which means we can help you apply to their courses and help with all the documents needed to submit an application. We can help answer questions about their courses and the institution itself as they do not necessarily have the capacity to deal with student enquiries from all around the world on a daily basis. This also means that they can ask us questions about your application and we can help explain if they are not familiar with your grades, academic background or the educational system in your home country. They also appreciate that students who apply through Across the Pond get the help they need, not only in terms of submitting the application and supporting documents, but also with everything needed pre-arrival in the UK, such as student accommodation, visa information, funding information and well as preparing for departure to the UK.
