Fashion course endorsed by industry

The BA (Hons) Fashion degree course offered by Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) has been awarded the Creative Skillset Tick, a highly influential and employer led quality mark for education and training. The University will be awarded the accolade by fashion industry legend Betty Jackson CBE, at a ceremony at the headquarters of Channel 4 attended by fashion industry and educational leaders.

Professor Hilary Carlisle, Dean of Design and Architecture at NUA, says: “This is a fantastic recognition for our University showing how our BA (Hons) Fashion degree combines industry relevance with the creative and technical skills that we have worked very hard to foster in our course.”

The event will also host the inaugural Anne Tyrell student design awards, posthumously named for the former Director of Design at John Marks whose work includes the current London Underground uniform. Anne, who was an alumna of NUA, was awarded the MBE for her contribution to the British Fashion Industry and received an honorary doctorate from the University for services to fashion in 2013.
