The FRA is the leading vocational college for specialist fashion retail courses, with start dates throughout the year. Many of our courses are exclusive and have been developed to provide a combination of an in-depth knowledge with hands on practical experiences. We offer the fastest route to a fashion retail career; our students secure jobs at the same level as degree graduates but on average two years quicker and without incurring the large debts associated with university study. Founded by the fashion retail industry in 2005, we now work with over 130 brands to provide unrivalled access to work placements and industry master classes, projects and workshops. Our courses are continually evolving to meet the current recruitment needs of the sector, providing you with the most up to date information and skills needed to succeed. Our state of the art building has recently undergone a £2 million upgrade, and you will learn from tutors who are experienced teachers and practising industry experts. Our success speaks for itself; over 75% of graduating students go on to jobs within the industry, and over 12% go on to Higher Education.
