A Passion for Fashion. International Fashion degree courses on your doorstep!

You no longer need to go abroad for a top-notch fashion degree taught in English. The Amsterdam Fashion Academy caters to those wishing to follow high-quality international fashion courses in one of the world’s most fashionable and cultured cities.

The big issue of what to study and where looms even larger for those attending international schools and for expats. Uproot your children again and send them back ‘home’? Run the risk of them feeling homesick in an often strange and distant land? Well for expats and students going to international schools with an interest in fashion the choice has now been made much easier with top-flight, English-taught fashion courses on their doorstep. From a Foundation course to internationally recognised Bachelor degree courses in Fashion Design or Fashion Business. This is all now within easy reach. Situated in the museum district of Amsterdam Oud-Zuid with its own state-of-the-art design studio, the Amsterdam Fashion Academy keeps classes small and so offers a high degree of individual tuition in a friendly and supportive environment. This high-level of personal attention and tuition makes the transition particularly easy for those used to the similar methods used in international schools.

The Amsterdam Fashion Academy has been established to meet the growing need for an international, English-taught fashion school where the creative genius of individual students is nurtured and developed, culminating in an internationally recognised Bachelor’s degree along with the skills and experience necessary to become a fully-fledged fashion professional in the increasingly important global world of fashion. For those students who possess the talent but maybe not all the entry requirements there is still the possibility of admission either to a degree course or a preliminary foundation course where under the watchful supervision of the skilled and highly-experienced teaching staff they can catch up and even surpass themselves. This is what makes the Amsterdam Fashion Academy truly unique: this combination of small-scale, student focused learning in an international and supportive environment. And it is all here in the Netherlands.

The UK validated programmes fit perfectly with the IB programme. For those with passion for design the BA Fashion and Textiles Design will help you reach your full creative potential and for those with an eye for fashion and good business, the BA Fashion business is the tailor-made course! The Fashion Foundation Year serves to bridge the gap for those who first need to develop more basic skills or didn’t quite complete the MYP-IB programme.

Amsterdam is a vibrant and fun city to live in. Being surrounded by all the history and art and living with fellow academy students in the supportive and safe student housing provided by the Academy, combine to enhance the learning experience in an inspiring and creative environment.
