Amsterdam Fashion Academy

Amsterdam Fashion Academy

Amsterdam Fashion Academy is a private and international top-flight fashion university with a difference: it is a dedicated hub of small-scale, student-centred learning in a personal and supportive environment. This ensures that every single student counts and is treated as an individual. Each of our students is unique with their own needs and talents which we foster, support and assist, so they can all develop to their full potential. 

We can provide you with an international perspective on the fashion industry thanks to multiple factors:

  • We are accredited by the reputable Buckinghamshire New University from the UK;
  • We are owned by Luiss Business School from Italy, which is part of Luiss University, a prestigious and world-renowned private university affiliated with the biggest Italian industries' organisation, Confindustria.
  • Our Industry Board includes professionals who have or had in the past prominent positions in brands such as Bulgari, Hugo Boss, Nike, Dr. Martens, C&A.

We offer bachelor’s degree programmes in:

Both programmes are meticulously aligned to UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) standards and are internationally recognised, allowing entry into Master’s degree programmes.

All students must go on an internship during the second year and work on industry projects during the final year. We are very proud to have had students doing their internships and working on real projects with brands like Viktor&Rolf, Iris van Herpen, Bas Kosters, SuitSupply, De Bijenkorf, Intimissimi, Four Amsterdam, Harper's Bazaar during the recent years.

Furthermore, starting from the first year, students work on a Personal Development Plan: a process of self-analysis and development to identify the right career path.

We also offer a one-year Preparatory Foundation Diploma in Fashion, which ensures direct access to our Bachelor’s degrees with Honours. This programme is for students who don’t meet the requirements to enter directly into the Bachelor’s degrees with Honours or for students who are unsure whether studying Fashion Design or Fashion Business.

The 73% of students are international and, therefore, all courses are taught in English. Lecturers are also international and have a solid experience within the fashion industry.
