I have been asked about the option of studying  Fashion & Design on a part time basis. So, if you’re interested in studying but don’t want a full time course then this may be of interest to you…..

You would be able to study the modules you require but as previously offered in the ‘Fashion Institute’ FASHION & DESIGN  DIPLOMA. 

The hours you are available for study can be discussed and would ultimately be up to you but I suggest as follows:- Wednesday and Friday

Wed :– 6.0 hrs    (10:00 till 4:30pm) inc ½ hr for lunch –

Fri:-     6.0 hrs     (10:00 till 4:30pm) inc ½ hr for lunch –

The charge for this study option is 50e per day in a class of two or more or €15 a hour 1:1. (75e a day)  and includes pattern cutting paper for block and pattern  development. Payment is a month in advance and is due at the start of the first class of the month. No repayment will be paid if the student cancels a class but fees will be returned if the class is cancelled by the Institute.

This is an example of the modules previously offered on the full time course.
