Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design, London, UK


Based in Central London, the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design operates from the heart of one of the world’s most exciting fashion capitals. The Condé Nast College is an important starting point for those who want to be tomorrow’s stars of the fashion industry. With outstanding resources, leading-edge facilities and access to experts from the worlds of fashion, style and luxury, the College prepares its students to work in all areas of this exciting and innovative industry.

We currently offer the following accredited courses – the BA (Hons) Fashion Communication, the one-year Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma, the ten-week Vogue Fashion Certificate, and the four-week Vogue Intensive Summer Course.

Our short courses include the one week Fashion Styling Course, the one week Fashion Journalism Course, the one week Fashion Business Course, and the Vogue Teen Weekend. 

The College is recognised throughout the world as a centre of educational excellence – a place where a new generation of the fashion industry’s best marketeers, PRs, stylists, editors, publishers, and journalists are starting their careers. The College achieves this by putting cutting-edge, student-centred, “anywhere, anytime” learning at the heart of our practice. In order to be sure that our students derive maximum benefit from the unique insight they receive into the fashion industry and its historical context, the College adopts a personalised and highly flexible approach to student learning.

Our courses are based on practical methods – not simply theory. Teaching is intensive and supportive, combining a high proportion of face-to-face sessions with state-of-the-art online learning facilities. This modern, blended learning approach also enables tutors to monitor students’ progress regularly and to deliver effective and constant feedback that is vital to ensure successful learning outcomes. Students also gain valuable, practical experience in delivering visual presentations. The ethos of the Condé Nast College is to equip students with knowledge and skills appropriate to a wide range of careers in the fashion industry or to prepare them for further study in relevant fields.

Library – Print and Digital

Students have access to a wealth of printed and digital media. The College’s central London location also means that students have easy access to many important public libraries and museums including The British Library, the National Art Library at the V&A, the Design Museum, Westminster Reference Library, Tate Library and archive reading rooms.

The college does not provide student accommodation, however the College can offer advice and further guidance to assist students in finding accommodation in London. Flat-shares are also very popular and may be a good option for some students.

Study at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design

The starting point of our courses may be the powerhouse of Vogue, but the curriculum is designed to give students a far-reaching, international view of the fashion industry—from the catwalks of London, Paris, New York and Milan to the new, emerging fashion giants, China, Russia and India. 

While these courses are extremely creative, it is not our aim to teach students how to be fashion designers. Instead they learn about the wider industry, the complex workings of the international fashion calendar and the all-important retail sector, from luxury to high street.
