Course Description

With an emphasis on practical skills, this in-depth, one-year course will equip you with all the commercial and analytical skills and knowledge you’ll need to succeed in a career in merchandising. The course is taught by industry specialists and combines theoretical learning with hands-on placements, workshops and masterclasses.

Merchandisers are key to every life cycle of a garment, and this field is a varied, pivotal and exciting one to be in. You’ll be sitting right at the heart of the action, at the intersection of business and creativity, deciding how to sell products to customers. It’s a Merchandiser’s job to boost sales and maximise profits, and this can include making sure that stock is monitored and available, working with Buyers to advise on successful lines, and working with Operations to agree on production stock levels, and much more.

Over the duration of this unique course, you’ll explore the impact of historical, social and cultural factors on fashion retail, the merchandising environment on a global scale, and the impact of globalisation on the industry. You’ll gain a solid understanding of the importance of financial data and how to use this to forecast future trends, and will also be taught to use a range of systems to prepare you for future merchandising job roles. The course also offers a number of broad and transferable skills; in various modules, you’ll develop your collaborative, presentation and critical thinking abilities. Your independent study and research skills will be improved by an individually negotiated fashion retail project and a work placement with a recognised high street fashion brand.

This fusion of theoretical and hands-on skills is effective in preparing you for your career progression following graduation. L4 Merchandising for Fashion Graduates go on to secure roles such as Merchandise Administrative Assistant (MAA) and Assistant Merchandiser. To help you get there, we’ll help you to prepare a portfolio and CV and recognise promising job opportunities.
