INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS AND OPPORTUNITIES

Get a global fashion perspective

We are proud to be part of a University that ranks within the top 3% of global universities. We are committed to delivering academic programmes, exchanges, projects, research and enterprise across the globe. We believe in internationalisation to develop a truly sustainable and ethical fashion industry.

PARTNER INSTITUTIONS

We are internationally connected having built a number of collaborative and strategic partnerships with institutions and organisations across the globe. These partnerships ensure that our staff are aware of the latest developments in fashion education and the apparel industry worldwide.

International partner institutions deliver Manchester Metropolitan University programmes in their own location, offering the opportunity to gain a British degree abroad. International partners also bring cultural diversity and a universal perspective, helping to enrich the Manchester Metropolitan University portfolio. Partner institutions can provide additional areas of expertise, which are of benefit to our students.

EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES

We aim to provide our students with as many international opportunities as possible and so offer bursaries to support students travelling abroad for placements, research or study trips. Our courses offer unparalleled international work placements with household brand names such as Adidas, Puma, Hugo Boss, and Next, as well as smaller, more niche design labels and clothing companies. We also hold competitions for expenses paid international trips to represent the University abroad. Each year Fashion Design and Technology student prize-winners travel to the Fashion Trade Fair in Shenzhen, China, to exhibit their final year collections.
