Modules

  • Into Fashion: Personal Development Planning

    This module will provide you with the opportunity to gain professional skills and reflect on their personal, professional and learning development.

    You will develop subject-specific skills, as well as professional skills and independent progress during the module. You will be challenged with different tasks and activities to develop your practice and consider links between your experience and what you are learning about the fashion industry.

    This module encourages you to become a professional, independent practitioner, and provides the opportunity to work as part of a team. The module focuses on the completion of an internship with a final-year student, working on an event and recording and analysing the experience in the format of an illustrated, written journal.

  • Introduction to the Global Fashion Industry

    This module will introduce you to a range of subject matter around the nature of the fashion industry and its international structure, informing your global future as the next generation of fashion-business leaders.

    You will be introduced to traditional models of the organisation and calendar of the fashion industry, from sourcing, product development and manufacturing, through to retail with the aim of building your contextual knowledge of the fashion industry as it developed in the twentieth century. Moving forward into the twenty-first century, fashion has become a truly global industry in which political, social and technological developments are causing the reinvention of traditional business models. Fashion has always been about ‘the new’ and future fashion managers need to be at the forefront of change, provoking and inspiring new business models.

    You will be introduced to the roles and responsibilities of the designer, with reference to ethical issues and the global fashion market so that you can connect and collaborate with the designers of the future.

  • Introduction to Fashion Marketing

    This module will introduce you to fashion marketing practices in a globalised and cross-cultural fashion industry. The emphasis is on the user experience, and how businesses adapt and change for future success. You will be introduced to the key principles and theories of marketing such as the marketing mix, segmentation and competitor analysis, and will explore how these are applied in the fashion industry today. The marketplace, whether high-street, luxury, sports or lifestyle, is constantly evolving and demands marketing strategies that engage with the digital human via websites, social media and mobile apps. This module aims to develop your critical and creative practice in the changing, dynamic and increasingly global fashion industry utilising practices such as digital campaigns, guerrilla marketing and social media.

    You will be introduced to fashion forecasting and will have free full access to Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), the global trend authority for fashion and the creative industries.

  • Product Development for the Global Consumer

    The aim of this module is to enable you to develop innovative and sustainable fashion products for tomorrow’s global consumer. This involves developing your critical understanding of the current turbulent times, with constantly changing political, economic and social environments and how these impact on consumer behaviours. You will learn how to identify consumer trends in a shifting landscape to satisfy the demands of the consumer of the future.

    You will be introduced to the marketplace, developing knowledge of national, local and global demographics and audiences, within the context of different cultures and values. You will reflect on different global needs and practices for the design and development of fashion products and services.

  • Future Proofing for Fashion Business

    This module will introduce you to the external environments in which a fashion organisation operates, and how these influence the decisions fashion organisations make.

    The makeup of the fashion industry is complex, with market levels ranging from the independent practitioner to large multinationals operating with a wide global reach as well as different business models ranging from SMEs to large design houses, major international retailers through to national and international wholesalers.

    Design and manufacturing make up only a fraction of the functions of a fashion business; critical functions include industry and consumer research, brand licensing and property rights, product development and manufacturing, marketing and distribution.

    Organisations are also influenced by the environment in which they operate; changes in the political, economic, social and technological environments can also affect the success of an organisation. For future fashion organisations, having a sound understanding of local, national and international environments is crucial for success. In this module, you will gain an insight into some of the everyday problems that fashion organisations face and the basic economics that can help you solve and these problems and future-proof your business.

Add+vantage

The focus on preparing students for successful futures sets Coventry apart as a university.

The Add+vantage modules teach a range of work experience and extra-curricular activities that are taken each year, and broaden students knowledge and skills within a work focused environment. There is a very wide range of Add+vantage free-choice subject areas, and they are arranged in themes.

Overview

In Year 2 you will have the chance to develop your entrepreneurial skills and look at how the very latest innovations can be taken out of laboratories into the hands of consumers. You will be introduced to the global buying cycle, sourcing routes and production management, and the relationship of ethics and sustainability to this, all essential skills for future Fashion business managers. You will undertake ‘live projects’ in London involving networking, digital campaign launches and online marketing strategies.

Modules

  • Future Fashion: Professional Development Planning

    This module builds upon all learning from the first year of the course, including Personal Development Planning. It focuses on planning ahead and considering career and personal ambitions.

    You will identify and explore your preferred area of the industry and formulate aims for your own future. You are expected to evidence awareness of steps required to achieve your aims; this should include reference to opportunities offered within the course (including placement, and/or study abroad options) as well as extra-curricular prospects to improve your professional outlook.

    The lecture programme is designed to introduce you to practical methods of preparing you for external opportunities, and asking you to prepare proactively for your personal, academic and career aspirations. Lectures introduce you to a variety of external opportunities, and explore ideas around employability, enterprise, social enterprise, volunteering, placements, funding for overseas opportunities, freelancing and live projects.

  • International Fashion Enterprise

    As we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution, materials science will have the potential to transform the fashion industry, opening up a wide range of new functional and aesthetic possibilities for garments.

    Future fashion managers will need to get these innovations out of laboratories and into the hands of consumers. To do this, they will need to collaborate with scientists, manufacturers and designers who understand what the consumer wants and how innovation can deliver it. Innovation in materials is essential as demand for raw materials outstrips natural resources. Cotton has traditionally been promoted as an ethical fibre, yet it is depleting water supplies; leather production is falling with factory farming impacting on the quality of hides.

    Consumer demand for more fashion products has impacted on waste: in the US alone, about 15 million tons of textiles is sent to landfill each year. Find out more here.

    3D printing, artificial intelligence and advances in biomaterials all have the potential to impact on future fashion business successes.

    This module will provide you with an overview of the global marketplace and an insight into how to identify new opportunities within emerging markets in order to develop your entrepreneurial skills. You will look at the challenges to be understood and harnessed by fashion management and marketing professionals in order to exploit the potential of these new markets. The module covers global trend predictions, focusing on ‘innovation rich’ and ‘innovation poor’ definitions in order to identify new markets and trends.

  • Global Campaign Communication Strategies

    In an increasingly digitally sophisticated and digitally demanding society, strategically communicated global campaigns are crucial to successful fashion businesses; future fashion brands increasingly use social media to market their products to consumer groups from Generation Y onwards. Digital marketing spans the globe and tomorrow’s digital brands and entrepreneurs will not be held back by physical location.

    This module aims to develop your critical and creative practice in the field of global campaign communication through the integration of theory and practice. You will analyse marketing, advertising and branding campaign case studies, and strategic pre-production promotion in order to engage with ‘live project’ networking, digital campaign launches and online marketing strategies.

    You will also research the link between ‘bricks and mortar’ and the online experience, and how to maximise a campaign’s potential to a target audience. You will be involved in project management in order to produce an integrated online and offline launch and will explore apps, social media and software such as Dreamweaver in order to learn to use channels effectively and professionally for promotional purposes. You will be encouraged to take risks and innovate as a core aspect of their practice.

    The module also aims to develop your ability to differentiate productively between consumer and business campaign communications. Future business managers will need to be aware of how consumers in different areas of the globe engage with social media. You will review cases of how a successful brand has been damaged in the media or online via ill-judged communications that have caused consumer backlash and will explore the infectious potency of viral social media.

  • Global Sourcing and Production Management

    This module will introduce you to existing models of the international buying cycle, sourcing routes and production management. It considers how these have evolved over the last 20 years in constantly changing political, economic and social environments that have forced companies to shift sourcing and production around the globe in order to remain viable businesses.

    This module will explain how the size of the organization – from independent designer, to multi-store chains – impacts upon sourcing options and production management. Sustainability and ethics are growing areas of the industry in their own right, with traceability and transparency of sourcing and manufacturing practices in a digital age impacting on any companies misjudging consumer expectation. You will analyse how innovation and technology are changing traditional views on raw materials in terms of sustainability. You will be challenged to rethink the traditional supply chain, and to address the product lifecycle with the aim of reducing the environmental footprint.

Add+vantage

The focus on preparing students for successful futures sets Coventry apart as a university.

The Add+vantage modules teach a range of work experience and extra-curricular activities that are taken each year, and broaden students knowledge and skills within a work focused environment. There is a very wide range of Add+vantage free-choice subject areas, and they are arranged in themes.

Overview

After the second year, the course offers an optional Professional Placement Year or Study Abroad Year.

Students can opt to take a Professional Placement or Study Abroad module which runs for a full academic year between years 2 and 3. Students can progress onto the relevant Professional Placement or Study Abroad module if they successfully complete the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits). Students confirm they are undertaking this option at the end of their second year, typically in August. They might choose one of:

  • an Erasmus study placement at an EU university;
  • a study placement at a university outside the EU;
  • an Erasmus professional work placement;
  • an approved professional work placement separately and independently organised that is outside the EU;
  • an approved professional work placement separately and independently organised within the UK;

Students opting for either the Study Abroad or Professional Placement year above will be registered on one of the specific modules listed below. Such modules are non-credit bearing but will appear on a student’s final academic transcript if completed. No additional tuition fees apply to such modules. If you complete the optional Study Abroad year or Professional Placement year, your degree award title will also provide the additional suffix of “With Professional Enhancement” if you’ve gone on placement and “With International Enhancement” if you’ve gone on a study abroad programme for a year. Students will thus graduate with 360 credits in total, assuming successful completion of their final year.

Please note that the University cannot guarantee any placement and/or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, accommodation, visas etc.), application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.
