University ranked in top 80 fashions schools in the world.

The University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) fashion department has been ranked in the top 80 fashion schools in the world.

The creative subject, which has also been ranked second in the North West of England and 15th in the United Kingdom, received the 2020 global ranking from CEOWORLD Magazine.

The classification process took into account global reputation and influence; specialisation; recruiter’s feedback; job placement rates; admission eligibility; and academic experience as well as data from more than 40,000 students, 50,000 industry professionals and 30,000 recruiters.

Maria Murray, Head of UCLan’s School of Art, Design and Fashion, said: “This is fantastic news for everybody involved with our fashion department. Not only is this a boost for our fabulous teaching staff and our enthusiastic and creative students but it’s also great for prospective students, our alumni and interested stakeholders.

“We have really close links with some of the biggest fashion labels in the world, including Burberry, M&S, Reebok, Abercrombie & Fitch, Levi, and the feedback we often get from these industry professionals is how our fashion department is one of the best in the business. It’s wonderful that this worldwide ranking has confirmed this.”

UCLan offers a variety of fashion courses, some of which include a year’s work placement at a global fashion brand. Students also benefit from many opportunities to present their work throughout their studies to industry professionals, the highlight of which being Graduate Fashion Week. At this event, graduates have the chance to showcase their work on the catwalk and exhibition space to the key fashion industry players, with many gaining industry contacts and winning nationally recognised awards.
