Textile and Fashion Design (TFD)

The study is conceived in the following way: according to the process of classification the students start with the first year of studies, after which they can choose one of two modules that last two years each:

  • Fashion design
  • Textile design

During the studies and with help of artistic and creative courses the students shape their individuality and develop the talents of creative research and design of textile or clothing that they connect with the module of specific knowledge from technological, humanistic and natural sciences. At the end of the studies they get the title Baccalearus TFD with the supplement Fashion designer or Textile designer. The knowledge that the student acquires during the three-year education give him/her the basis for independent or team work on the market (fashion/textile designer, designer of accessories, stylist, textile/fashion expert in various institutions, the manager and director of scientific workshops and so on), as well as the basis to continue the education at the following studies: Fashion design, Textile design, Costume design, Theory and culture of fashion, Clothing design for industry and Fashion design for industry.

 Common part of the undergraduate course

The first year of the studies has common courses for both of the branches. The contents of particular subjects in the second year are adapted to the specific requirements of the branches.

 Specialised part of the undergraduate course and the graduate course

As early as in the first year, and especially after it, the students in the branches are free to choose among the free electives within various groups of electives, and thus create their own professional specialisation, according to their personal preferences and requirements. The subjects included in the branch enable the students, especially those at the graduate level, to learn the skills of applying particular expert sub-fields of knowledge, which could be useful at particular jobs. The curricula of the branches are structured so that the students are obliged to take free electives, which are awarded at least 27 ECTS credits at the undergraduate level, and at least 24 ECTS credits at the graduate level.
