FAQs

Do I need to prepare a fashion portfolio?

Your portfolio is a reflection of your skills, personality and experience. Our Art and Design courses do require a portfolio submission during the application process. 

Find out more by reading our helpful portfolio guide.

Do your courses have their own social media channels I can follow?

Both our Fashion Design and Fashion Image Making and Styling courses have an Instagram profile.

How can I prepare for my fashion course?

Before you start the course, we will send you a letter with recommendations on books and magazines which will help you to prepare for the course. In the meantime you can read lots of fashion magazines. Dazed & Confused and Purple are good places to start. You can also research fashion photographers.

What will my timetable in first year look like?

First year students are in four days a week. Typically the contact hours are 9.30am-4.30pm, although some days may be shorter. There is normally one full day free a week to enable students to participate in extra-curricular activities or work part-time.

Is this course suitable for students that commute?

Yes! There is lots of support for commuter students at Salford. We have two Commuter Hubs which are designated areas on campus for commuters who want somewhere to study away from the library, make/eat their own food, or even play some Xbox games! Alongside that we have excellent transport links - there is reasonable parking on campus, there is a train station next to Peel Park Campus and there are buses running every few minutes into Manchester and going into Greater Manchester.
