The Foundation Year at Accademia del Lusso prepares students for undergraduate degree programmes or 3-year courses in the areas of fashion and design. The course is designed as an entry route to a fashion bachelor’s degree for those who don’t yet meet the admission requirements for degree-level study*. It is also ideal for those who would like to gain more knowledge of the fashion sector without committing to a longer course straight away.
