How to apply

You may be applying directly from school or university, taking a gap year, or seeking a career in the fashion, media or luxury brand industries. Or you may simply wish to fuel your personal interests.

Either way, entry onto the courses is highly competitive. Successful applicants must possess an inherent inquisitiveness, the maturity to take responsibility for their personal development, and the capacity to thrive in an environment that encourages critical thinking and clear communication. 

Entry onto the ten-week Vogue Fashion Certificate and the one-year Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma is a competitive three-stage process.


Stage One

Consists of an application form to assess your potential to benefit from the course. Each applicant is asked to provide details about themselves including personal details, education history and any work experience undertaken, and will also be asked to write in 250 words a personal statement describing their academic interests and reasons for applying to the College.

 

Stage Two

Is a short assignment called The College Challenge that can either be written or submitted in video format. For more information, please see The College Challenge.


Stage Three

A limited number of applicants will be invited for interview (either in person or by telephone/Skype). A typical interview will usually last 30 minutes to an hour, and it's a way for us to put a face to your application.
