Students ranked the institution’s campus and resources below average compared to the ratings of other schools in our survey. Students receive a well-grounded education in technical skills, innovation and sustainability courses but expressed only average satisfaction with marketing and business courses. Students were not satisfied with the quality of recruiters attracted by the school, but rated the school’s networking events and career fairs highly.

Student & Alumni Comments

"It was an amazing experience, I was given a lot of exposure and equipped with the necessary skills that prepared me for the fashion world. I had so much exposure at different fairs and fashion weeks, which were all organised by the institution. That is why I felt ready to start my own fashion business right after my studies. The school gave me a general overview of the fashion world, including PR, styling, marketing, photography and many other aspects encompassed by the fashion industry."


"Wish the school was more recognised in the global industry. We as students are not recognised on the same level as those from many other schools. This puts us at a disadvantage with recruiting for coveted positions."
