The Conde Nast College of Fashion & Design opened in London in Spring 2013. It is the first higher education institution to be established by Conde' Nast, the world's pre-eminent magazine publishing company. Titles published by Conde' Nast Publications include Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, LOVE, GQ, Tatler, Conde' Nast Traveller, and WIRED. Capitalising on its unrivalled network of contacts throughout the fashion industry, the College aims to provide students with a world-class fashion education. The Conde' Nast College does not teach fashion design, but instead offers strongly vocational courses which prepare students for the world of work in areas as diverse as PR, marketing, styling, buying, journalism, art direction, e-commerce, print and digital media and retail.
Our close link to Conde' Nast publications gives students exceptional access to not only our own print and digital magazine teams but also the wider fashion industry. As a result students are exposed to a remarkable roster of high profile industry speakers and guest lecturers and are presented with a significant networking opportunity. Our intensive academic programmes mean that students receive a minimum of 15 contact hours each week (comprised of lectures seminars and tutorials) plus additional study time during which they will be expected to complete a series of formally assessed projects. The College draws upon Conde' Nast's own multidiscipline experts working on world famous brands like Vogue, Love, GQ, Glamour and Tatler, again giving students a unique insight into how the component parts of the magazine business - in print and online - really work. The Conde' Nast College has a capacity of 105 students meaning that we are able to offer an extremely nurturing and exclusive experience. We get to know the students incredibly well and they in turn get to know each other incredibly well. The College has quickly established itself as a go-to resource for businesses looking to hire our bright, talented graduates. We regularly post job opportunities via our student portal to both current students and our alumni network. Our graduates have gone on to an amazing array of jobs within the fashion industry across the world. The College is situated in award-winning, state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of London's Soho.
