    The Cox Review of Creativity in Business (2005), commissioned by the UK government, cites design as: "what links creativity and innovation, it shapes ideas to become practical and attractive propositions for users or customers."

    If you are currently employed in or would like to develop a career in fashion design, the Fashion and the Creative Economy MA course is ideal. It will develop your creative skills while also giving you an overview of how to manage the industry effectively within the creative economy.

    By the end of the course, you will be equipped with the leading-edge knowledge and practical skills needed to succeed in this area of the creative economy.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
