The 2-year Diploma in Fashion Design is a great starting point to get an overview of the fashion industry without committing to the full 4-year Bachelor program.
Perhaps you are having a career change after years of working in another field?
Or you have already studied another major and just want to add new skills to your skillset or profile? Maybe you want to refresh your existing fashion skills?
You can learn so much from the 2-year program from basic drawing skills or computer illustration skills to basic pattern cutting and garment construction. You can then decide whether to continue further with Bachelor program or whether to start your venture out into the fashion world.


The DFD curriculum structure is composed of 33 credits of Core Fashion and Design courses, 24 credits of General Education courses and 6 credits of Fashion and Design Elective courses. In total 63 credits are required for graduation.
