Students will enhance their fashion styling and editorial production abilities to prepare for advanced roles within the industry, working independently and collaboratively with a fashion team.
How do I enroll in the 11-Week Level Courses?
To begin your enrollment process in our programs, arrange a meeting with our admissions staff to discuss program details and requirements. Following this discussion, you can submit your online application, with the USD 1000 registration fee deducted from the total tuition. Alongside your application, you will be required to provide the following admission documents: identification, a resume, an English test, a bank statement, and a sponsor letter, if necessary. You will receive comprehensive guidance via email following the meeting with your admissions specialist, who will guide you through the process.
Can I enroll in Fashion Styling Level 4 without completing the previous levels?
Students must have completed the prerequisite levels 1, 2, and 3 to enroll in the fourth level of the fashion styling program. For those with advanced fashion styling experience, admission to Level 4 requires a portfolio review. Exceptions may be granted based on the results of the portfolio review conducted by our Academic Committee.
