Fashion Retail Academy

Fashion Retail Academy is a specialist provider based in central London offering Level 2, 3 and 4 diplomas, apprenticeships and undergraduate degree courses in fashion and retail specialisms. Founded in 2005 by five industry partners - Next, Experian, Tesco F&F, Arcadia, and Marks & Spencer - over 13,000 graduates are now in employment across the UK, Europe and worldwide.

Our degree courses are underwritten by Falmouth University, and created in collaboration with industry to ensure the very latest skills gaps are addressed through academic learning and industry enrichment. We believe that fashion and retail is about creativity, innovation and business acumen and these skills are taught through theoretical and practical education that includes fashion design, merchandising, marketing, and management.

Working with over 140 industry partners, all of our courses allow students to work on real-world briefs and projects, gaining unrivalled access to some of the industry’s top brands. Our accelerated two year delivery on most courses enables our graduates to get into employment a year quicker than a traditional degree, armed with relevant experience to ensure they are job-ready.
